Delicious and meaty. This is a great counterpoint to the fruity sparklers the holidays brought.

A classic Michigan Cabernet Franc with good tannins and delicious fruit. Lemon Creek is showing very well in the 2007 release!

I love the spices in this wine! The nose is just a bit smoky and the finish lingers just long enough. The quality of the reds from this Michigan Winery had to be tasted to be believed.

Visited the winery and sampled 6 wines, none of which were showing very well. This release seemed to be poor in quality with a lack of flavors and fullness experienced in prior years. Put one bottle away in the cellar to try later.

Dark coffee and tobacco on the nose with hints of candied fruit. Black currant and vanilla dominate the palate which has a little heat on it. The finish is short but soft. This wine would pair well with beef stew or spaghetti and meatballs.

Bright and pleasant with pear and green apple flavors. The tiny bit of green on the nose doesn't detract from the smooth fruit aromas and flavors.

Good flavors but seems to be past it's prime. The bottle wasn't cellared well and was rescued a bit too late. I could tell though that it would have been outstanding had it been stored properly and opened a few years earlier.

"Meh" is the best way to describe this wine. Chalky and tannic with hints of fruit but nothing spectacular. Might be better suited to pair with a meal.

For my palate this wine is almost as good as it gets. Beautiful aromas of dark fruit and spice with a touch of chocolate. Cherries and blackberries with chocolate and spice make for a delicious pour.
