Port Ruby

As Ruby ports tend to show sweet plumy, cherry and blackberry flavors, they’re ideal to pair with dessert, or better yet, as a replacement for dessert! That said, should you have some creamy Ganache-filled truffles, chunks of premium dark chocolate, or even fruit-filled chocolates lying about, don’t hesitate to marry them Ruby port. It’s a wickedly delicious pairing!
