Port Wine Cake

Juicy red cake, sweet wine, with chocolate hints of dark chocolate and spices with a strong presence, which further highlight the existence of chocolate.
The Port Wine, except its sweetness and perfume, gives this excellent cake a moist texture and keeps it juicy and slightly sticky.
