Northern Vineyards Rivertown Red Minnesota

Member Review by art4atom:

One of only two wines I've bought that I didn't even save to cook with. The nose was a combination of lager yeast, bile, and vinegar. The taste had a bit of generic tart fruit, but was overwhelmed by a taste strikingly similar to beer that's been fermented too warm with a bacterial infection.

Art4Atom...Hopefully your taste in art isn't as bad as your taste in wine. Or apparent lack thereof...My wife and I have been to many local wineries and have yet to find a better Frontenac than offered by Northern Vineyards Winery. I'm a home winemaker and I know from experience that Frontenac can produce a strong sometimes unpleasant smell, but Northern Vineyards Winery nailed it! Like I said before, this is the BEST Frontenac I've ever had... enough said.
