Marquette – Schram Vineyards, Waconia, MN


($32, 13% ABV, Schram Vineyards Winery & Brewery)

Marquette is Minnesota’s grape with a black fruitiness to it. This Marquette wine from Schram Vineyards has a plum and black cherry fruit flavor and a nice balance of oak.

If you remember, over a month ago, I had written about a Marquette from Parley Lake Winery also located in Waconia, MN. That Marquette wine was similar to this one but without the plum flavor. 

I always enjoy comparing similar wine varieties and seeing the difference in each one.
