Community Tasting Notes (2) Avg Score: 88.7 points

  • •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.

  • Heavy black pepper on the nose with some hints of green. The fruit really explodes on the palate with flavors of cherries and currant and just a hint of chocolate. Medium bodied with a spicy finish.
