Our very first release of the cold-climate grape Marquette is a fruity and delicious medium-bodied red wine in the style of the French “Beaujolais” wines. Very dark in color, the wine is almost purple and has sweet aromas of various red fruits like plum, black cherry and mulberry predominating, while secondary aromas of brown sugar and sweet spices create a flavorful and long-lasting taste sensation. The wine is rich and mouth coating, intensely fruity, with a very pleasant and pure finish. Paired with grilled meats, pizza, hearty stews or tomato-based pastas, our Marquette will amply provide the evidence needed to believe that delicious red wine can in fact be grown in Minnesota.
