2019 Marlena Port
In honor of Mario and Lena Lanza, grandparents of brothers Rick, Ron, Larry, and Ken Lanza, we named this dessert wine “Marlena.” Mario and Lena were the first generation of the Lanza family to make wine in Suisun Valley.
This sweet dessert wine explodes with aromas of ripe blackberry, boysenberry, and plum—flavors of almond, espresso, and chocolate-covered cherry. A smooth finish coats the palate with cocoa and raspberry. Overall, it’s multilayered, inviting, and continues to unfold as you enjoy it. It’s terrific on its own or paired with spiced cookies, gingerbread, almond cakes, or orange-scented desserts. Another great option is to pour it on vanilla ice cream.

Received are first 2 bottles this week in Sun City AZ. Opened one last night after dinner and we must say this port is terrific. We will be ordering more after the first of the year.
