The 2016 Minnesota Frontenac is our second Frontenac for Chankaska Winery! This years crop was a blend of the Frontenac from John Roisen’s amazing plot of ground near Montevideo and our Estate Vineyard.
This wine crosses the dark berry quality with hints of dried herbs, bay leaf and chocolate. The tannins are in check so there is no astringency only smooth crushed velvet on the finish. The addition of Petite Sirah gives it a touch of sophistication. This wine will easily age for 8 to 10 years but enjoy it in its youth too. If you can, I would recommend decanting it before drinking.
My ideal pairing with the 2016 Minnesota Frontenac is Schmidt’s Meat Market MN Summer Sausage that has wild rice and blueberries.
