NORTHERN CROSS VINEYARD WILL BE POURING TWO RED WINES, A MARQUETTE AND A FRONTENAC
The Marquette is a medium-body, smooth, dry red with notes of black cherries, spice, and soft tannins. It has a nice spicy finish with nutmeg and black pepper. The pinot noir and merlot heritage provide the medium body with light tannins and some darker fruits which give it good structure.
The Frontenac is estate grown red wine that is a deep garnet color with a distinctive strawberry note and pleasing undertones of blackberry, black currant, and inviting plum flavors. Frontenac comes across with aromas of cherry and other red fruits.
- You can find these wines at Exit 9 Wine and Liquor Warehouse, Barrymore’s Wine and Spirits, or arrange a pickup anytime at Northern Cross Vineyard.
