2016 Reserve Marquette

Our winemaker’s chose to make a Reserve Marquette rather than an Estate Marquette this year due to the exceptional quality of the wine when adding the Lone Oak Tree Vineyard grapes.

The grapes were picked on September 19th at the height of ripeness and in the early morning hours. We chose to ferment it separately from the first day and after almost four weeks of fermentation, it was gently pressed off. After 18 months in barrel, we bottled the Reserve Marquette in April of 2018. We might have the finest example of Marquette in the Midwest.

The nose is enticing with black cherry and sweet tobacco along with leather and smoke. On the entry, the wine is rich and velvety with mouth filling dark fruits and a long finish. Drink this wine with roasted wild game or duck. Enjoy over the next five to seven years.
