Park Farm Winery – ‘Vintner’s Reserve Marquette’ 2012

Opaque and purplish red nearing black.  When swirled in the glass this wine leaves strong legs and exhibits strong aromas of toast and stewed fruit, with undertones of berry, black pepper and plum.  On the palate this wine is soft with subtle tannins and acidity, but would still serve well as a pairing for strong dishes like beef.
