Community Tasting Note
DrinkNectar Likes this wine: (89 points)
May 24, 2010 - •The Stuff: % not listed on web site; 22 months in French/Hungarian oak (80/20); 13%abv
•The Swirl: Light bright purple color that is moderately translucent. Color moves out to clear toward the edges.
•The Sniff: Medium cherries with hints of graham cracker and cocoa. A mild whiff of smoky bacon begins to erupt from the glass when taking a deep sniff.
•The Sip: Medium body with thin under-ripe blackberry fruit and twigs. The smoky tobacco flavor continues on the palate. A good firm tannin structure on the back end. The acidity is slightly off balanced from the flavor presentation
•The Score: At $22 retail, I can score this a 3+ (out of 5) and really enjoyed this presentation of Cabernet from the Lake Michigan Shores AVA. I continue to be impressed with the improving quality out of the Michigan area.1,553 views
