"The effects of the 2014 Polar Vortex were still being felt in our vineyard for the 2015 season. Our limited harvest of Viognier, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc have been combined into this lovely unoaked wine with great fruit flavors." Fitting to serve a Polar Vortex wine on the day in July on which my children demanded a roast chicken-and-potatoes #comfortfood fest #miwine #wine @domaineberriencellars — 2 years ago

This afternoon a good friend and I shared the 2011 Domaine Berrien Cellars Crown of Cab. The wine is a blend of 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 9% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec. Your classic Bordeaux blend and again from my favorite winery in Southwest Michigan.
On the nose you will find black cherry, black raspberry, black currant, licorice, herbs, spice and a nice earth component.
The palate brings forth the dark fruit, black cherry, black raspberry, black currant, green bell pepper, menthol, black licorice, spice, an herbal note and a nice earthy loam.
The wine is full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + sandy tannins that leads to a long clean dark fruit finish. What a pleasant and surprising experience we enjoyed this afternoon. I loved how this wine has developed over time and given another 5 to 10 years it will continue to gracefully age. This is Domaine Barrien's flagship wine and for the price you can't beat it. Enjoy the rest of the weekend and have a great week ahead. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 7 months ago
