On the palate, it is full-bodied and smooth, with a perfect balance of sweetness and acidity. The flavors of dark fruits and spices are complemented by notes of dark chocolate and a touch of oak. The tannins are firm yet silky, providing a satisfying structure to the wine.
The finish is long and lingering, with a pleasant aftertaste of dried fruits and spices. Overall, the Sandeman Founder’s Reserve is an excellent example of a well-crafted ruby port. It is easy to drink and pairs well with a wide range of desserts, from chocolate cake to fruit tarts. It is also a great choice to enjoy on its own as an after-dinner drink.
