The 2009 Iowa Marquette is our first dry red wine made from the Marquette grape grown in our Mahaska County, Iowa vineyards. The wine is big with hints of cherry, blackberry, and spices on the palate. It was fermented and aged in new 200 liter French oak barrels for one year and then aged in 225 liter French, Eastern European, and American oak barrels for 11 more months.
We have only 23 cases of this wine in the Tassel Ridge cellar so it will be gone in a few weeks.
Come into the tasting room and taste it against the 2010 and 2012 Iowa Marquette and decide which vintage you like best.
2009 Iowa Marquette is priced at $25.00 per 750 ml bottle, plus tax and bottle deposit.
