Hailing from a warm vintage, this vineyard-designated wine from northern Michigan shows a vibrant and integrated nose of ripe cherry and raspberry, with hints of white pepper, dusty cedar and button mushroom. Don't let the light color fool you; this wine shows an intriguing depth of flavor and breadth to the palate. Juicy red cherry tones are sprinkled with tilled earth and red flowers, all supported by finely-grained tannins.
Formerly working in the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, Peartree's passion for terroir-expressive products, which spans from wine to cider and tea, is only rivaled by his love of canoeing and hiking. He prefers to focus on wines from Virginia, Michigan, Texas and other smaller U.S. regions, as well as domestic and international cider.
