This wine is a Frontenac blend - Frontenac being a red grape developed by the U of M to withstand Minnesota's harsh weather. It has a touch of sweetness, is very full-bodied, and pretty mellow. Most Minnesota wines *are* horrible, but Alexis Bailly is reliable for quality wine, and IMO Voyageur is their best.

This is not at all like a traditional red wine from the world's best known wine growing regions. It has unique fruit flavors consistent with the cold-hardy varieties it is made from. This Minnesota wine has fruity and floral aromas and very robust red and dark fruit flavors. Red cherries, blackberries, and preserves abound. Chocolate, mocha, vanilla and oak also show. This is a fruity yet deep and layered full bodied wine with fine tannins

Winemaker's Notes:

STYLE: A bold red wine of blended old world french grapes and new varieties developed to survive Minnesota winters ALCOHOL: 13%, no residual sweetness Our Voyageur wine was named for the French/Canadian pioneers who paddled the waterways in their birch bark canoes from the St. Lawrence seaway through the Mississippi, finding their way to Hastings led by our 4th great grandfather, Alexis Bailly. Our wine reflects that pioneering spirit in taking our old world grape varieties from France (the Leon Millot and Marechal Foch grapes) that were the orignal plantings in our vineyard in 1973 and blending them with the new world grapes developed at the University of Minnesota (the Frontenac grape). The wine is deeply colored with rich flavor, bold and opulent fruit flavors of black berries, smoky vanilla aromas from extensive aging in new mid-western oak barrels, a wonderfully balanced wine that drinks deliciously when young yet rewards you with greater complexity as it ages from 3- 8 years in the bottle. Pair with similarly robust foods, hearty pastas, grilled meats, wild game, but know that it drinks soft and supple all on its own.
