Enjoyed a previous vintage at Grange in Ann Arbor; this one also pleasing. Good structure; feels oaky but aged in neutral oak so I'd chalk some of that up to Blaufrankisch spice. Curious to see what it does in a couple years.

Absolutely killer nose; delicious now, but it's a teenager. Looking forward to revisiting this one in a couple years. #miwine

The very early beginnings of a regional sensation. Blau in the mitten... Pay attention.

Delectable, this is actually the split county blaufrankisch. This stuff is really good. Another win for LFC and northern Michigan wines! Lots of red raspberries, some white and black pepper, and a touch of oak. Smooth and nuanced. Can’t wait to try their reserve.

Tasting this blind I don't think many would think this was a wine from the US let alone Michigan. Light colored with good acidity and sour berries. More like a tasty French Gamay than a typical Blaufrankisch. A fun experiment if you're willing to pay for it.

Love this! My favorite red from Michigan yet. Robust, peppery, medium-body. Begging for hearty/earthy salads. Would be a nice fall wine.
