Honeyed, rich, elegant.
The folks from V. Sattui, one of the oldest wineries in Napa (1885!), suggested a preserve of figs married with their 20-year Port. This port, "smelling and tasting like it could have come from any of the famous producers of Oporto," is one incredible sip on its own meaning it could only add to the honeyed, organic kadota figs from Steven Murray's Farms.
This fig preserve is utterly delicious - honeyed, port-y perfect for a cheese plate (goat cheese please), a prosciutto sandwich, or as an accoutrement to a grilled protein. Put it on top of ice cream? Yes please!
Only available here or at V. Sattui.
