Overview

Enjoy the unique terrior or “sense of place” aspects of this Wisconsin Ledge wine. The fruitier aromatics of a cool 2014 summer and fall season are balanced gracefully with its lighter tannin structure. The winemaker artfully blended the aromatics of the Marquette and Louise Swenson with the structure of the Petite Pearl in order to give you a cuvee that will continue to evolve and offer finesse for years to come.

Winemaker's Notes

Cuvee is a French wine term derived from the word cuve, meaning vat or tank in French. It is a term that traditionally references the winemaker’s special or superior blend of the year.
 
This 2014 vintage is a blend of the back to back award winning Petite Pearl grapes grown in the vineyards of Parallel 44 and the Marquette grapes grown in Door and Kewaunee Counties. The 2014 vintage offers the racy acidity and bright red aromatics of a cool growing season. The 2014 Cuvee expresses the growing season in a way that is similar to the expressiveness of the growing season often reflected in classic Pinot Noir vintages.
 
This dry wine was aged with new French Oak and has only begun its process of aging gracefully. The winemaker expects this wine to continue to evolve over time and to be best enjoyed with food pairings much like Sangiovese wines from Tuscany pair well with northern Italian dishes of pasta and red sauces.
 

Tasting Notes

Offering notes of oak, black cherry, and finishing with underlying tones of raspberry and bittersweet dark chocolate. Becoming more expressive as it ages and it’s recommended to let the bottle breath for an hour before drinking so as to more fully open its delicate
