Lemberger 

Best in Class Winner 

This vintage has a great plummy nose with toasty overtones.  Rustic tannins.  Medium bodied with a spicy dry finish.  The grapes name breaks down to mean "good, fine wine"!  Great with portabella mushrooms or pork tenderloin.

Cabernet Franc 

Gold Medal Winner 

Aromas of violets and mint with notes of cherry and blackberry on the palate.  Balanced tannins witha touch of pepper.  Extremely smooth and graceful.  The finish is amazing - it goes on forever!  Pairs well with any kind of beef dish.

Syrah 

The 2011 vintage explodes with flavors of blueberry and dark fruit.  Aromas of blackberry cobbler baking in the oven and an incredibly long, lingering finish of white pepper and balanced, smooth oak tannins. 

11wolfsWinemaking Notes

Wolf's Prairie Red 

Oaky aromas integrated with a subtle smokiness.  Full flavors of dark cherry, plum, and spices.  Lingering finish!  This combination of the hybrid grapes de Chaunac and Chelois will age well for years, getting softer and rounder with time.

Crown of Cabernet 

Best in Class Winner 

This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot offers a deep, rich color with black cherry, cocoa, and overripe blackberry flavors.  Nice oak integration and incredibly balanced from 24 months of aging, with a long lingering finish.  A touch of espresso and toast at the end, with toasted vanilla and molasses on the nose.  The closest thing we have found to sex in a bottle!

Cabernet Sauvignon 

The King of Grapes!  Spicy black cherry & dark cofee notes with a smooth plum finish.  Nicely integrated oak.  A good one for you cellar!

11merlotWinemaking Notes

Merlot 

When it was released, this vintage was young and supple.  Deep plum color in the glass.  Aromas of cigar box, mossy earth, and berries.  Fruit foward with hints of violets.  Balanced tannins with a lingering, silky finish.  Better buy two - one for the cellar, and one for tonight!

Cabernet Franc Ice Wine 

The 2011 Ice Wine has distinct fruit flavors of cherry, strawberry, and cinnamon with a spicy finish.  Brick red color comes from the Cabernet Franc grapes.  Aromas of mulling spices, honey, and caramel.  Very sweet - 28% residual sugar.  Enjoy slowly with fruit or dark chocolate.
