Frontenac 2014

$18.95

Frontenac is an important grape for the Midwest. The parent grape was found growing wild along the Minnesota River. The wild cuttings were bred with a hybrid French vine, which created a wine grape with hearty vines that could withstand our harsh winters. In 2004, the first red grape was planted in our vineyard, it was the Frontenac grape. Those grapes currently constitute 25% of our vineyard: a full three acres are dedicated to making this wine, and more are used to blend with other wines we produce.

This Wine's Characteristics

Frontenac has mineral edges and cherry fruit that only one specific part of our vineyard produces. Deep, bold and full bodied, this bottle was aged twelve months in 100% French oak barrels. The palate will recognize black cherry and subtle chocolate aromas, with complex layers. Drink now or let it age, Frontenac will not disappoint.

Pairings

Ideal for pasta, barbeque, spicy foods, beef, and wild fowl.
