This Port-style wine is made from 100% Muscadine grapes, but the winemaker says they were not Alaska-grown. The wholesaler which provided the juice to him could not pinpoint where they were grown. The Muscadine grape is fairly popular in the humid southeastern states.
I’ve had Muscadine wine before - from Alabama - and it was less than spectacular. This wine is actually pretty good. The nose is huge with strawberry and a mercifully faint whiff of Muscadine. The palate is close to great. Alcohol at 17% abv keeps things lively, while the earthy red fruit flavor hits a nice savory note.

It was good, but it is also a port. Not my cup of wine.
