"I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now"
--My Back Pages, Bob Dylan
For all you old Warriors out there, time to ring out a hoya! We have officially released our 2013 Marquette. In fact, we received a silver medal for it at the International Taster's Guild Competition two weeks ago. Pretty impressive for a dry red just harvested last fall and bottled a couple weeks prior to the competition. Marquette is a great new grape variety just released seven years ago. Being an alumni (the untucked class of '77) I was compelled to plant a small block. Keith has done a wonderful job in the cellar handling the mix of extremely high sugars and high acids in the grapes at harvest. It has a little Pinot Noir in its DNA and we add a splash of our Pinot Noir to it for good measure. It's a team of destiny. A dark, complex wine with a hint of Bing cherry in the finish. Summa Cum Laude!
