After a warmer than usual September, autumn has started in earnest —making this just the right time of year indulge in a warming glass of fortified wine.

Fortified wines are wines to which distilled alcohol, usually brandy, is added during the wine-making process. Not only is the wine’s alcohol content increased, but the process can have profound effects on the wine’s flavor and mouth feel. Indeed, fortified wines often seem to combine the flavors and heft of wine, with the warming sensations of distilled spirits.

The Tio Pepe Kosher Fino Sherry got high marks in this month’s tasting.
