St. Croix

 

This hybrid grape cultivar was produced in 1983 by Elmer Swenson, a pioneering grape breeder who introduced a number
of new cultivars that are hardy in the Upper Midwest. It was introduced by the University of Minnesota.
 
St. Croix vines are vigorous and produce medium sized, somewhat loose clusters of grapes. It has moderate to good
disease resistance, and is hardy to -28°F or better.
 
St. Croix grapes produce medium to full bodied, dry, deep red wines with low tannins, good fruity aromas, and have currant and other dried fruit flavor aspects. Production often employs oak barrel ageing to add even more complexity to the wine’s bouquet and flavors.

  • Here's the Les Halles indoor market which always (rightfully so) gets a lot of play by overseas visitors, including TV and movies. Very upscale but you've gotta go once--or more than once. The city even asked Paul Bocuse to brand it, something that elicits various reactions, but really has little to do with the markets and drinking and eating pl... Read More

  • Hi guys, I'm here again for some advice on wine travel: I will be in Lyon this November for 4 days (well, 3 and 1/2) and I was thinking about trying to hit a couple of caves. I will not be driving, which makes it tricky, but not afraid of taking trains, buses, Bla Bla Car, Uber, etc... Also not *totally* opposed to tours... I know, beggars can't... Read More

  • "with regard to Pinot Noir, I still prefer the ones from Oregon"You need to drink a lot more Burgundy, and of the others I mentioned, too.  ;-)   Oregon's getting there but still on the road, not yet fully arrived IMHO, even if I enjoy many of theirs. Was writing on these boards about Soter and Drouhin, for example, last decade. I certainly comm... Read More

  • Chateau Croix Esperence Lussac St Emilion 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Didn't blow my socks off. Not overly tannic. Mellow and we'll aged. A bit hot on the nose. Hints of chocolate and blackcurrent but elusive. Read More

  • Interestingly, found a Montebello edged out a Dunn from the same mature vintage recently, though both could've been WOTN, with very tough competition from the Musigny. Two meals, one seafood and white, the 2nd red meat and red wine. Every single bottle gets my *buy* recommendation. Interestingly, was down in the tropics just north of the equator... Read More

  • The worst: any dry red from Finger Lakes, NY such as Dr Frank Merlot or Bully Hill St Croix, Apothic Red tastes like stewed plums and feces, Wine Men of Gotham Shiraz tastes like used diapers, Barefoot Cabernet, Hazlitt Red Cat (actually the #1 selling wine in NY State can you believe it) Read More

  • Bully Hill St Croix Special Reserve 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Tastes like mostly Chambourcin, sour. Very dry, thin, only sour cherries on the finish. Not terrible but you're better off with a $5.99 merlot than this if you want a dry red. Read More

  • Harvest time in Vermont conjures images of dried cornstalks, heaps of pumpkins, fresh cider donuts, and multi-colored leaves. Amber, orange, and yellow images may be iconic to autumn in the Green Mountain State but lately hues of red, white and rosé are showing-up in an expanding agricultural economy where cold climate fruits are fermenting into...
