I really enjoyed the complexity of this wine! It took my husband and I a while to decide what it tasted like. I felt like it had a earthy flavor but I could not put a finger on it. So I then utilized my free tasting guide and my eyes met my answer, forest floor.

Indian Island’s St. Croix is made up of 100% St. Croix grapes. The St. Croix grape was introduced by the University of Minnesota. It is known to have low tannin and be medium to full bodied. These wines often have a flavor profile of current or other dark berries.

Taste the experience…

Picture yourself getting up early on a fall day and taking a walk in the woods. Everything around you is still wet from the morning dew. It is a peaceful morning. The birds are chirping and there is a soft breeze that is pushing your hair ever so slightly. You take a deep breath and that smell, right in that moment, is what this wine tastes like.
