The pretty pomegranate red hue provides a look into the heart of this Port. Light and fragrant violets and lavender are bolstered by the aromas of sweet blackberry and anise. There is also a whiff of spirit that is noticeable but does not detract. Broadbent's Auction Reserve offers a smooth, medium-bodied Port that delivers fresh, fruit forward boysenberry and plum flavors with a nice touch of chocolate that adds to the overall enjoyment of this wine. The tannins let you know they have shown up to the party, without being obtrusive. This new addition to the Broadbent stable of Ports delivers a lingering and fruit filled finish.
