Oh wow -- if you like red wine, stay clear. It was pricey, some around $18 a bottle, and I was in a hurry after picking my son up from college, and still had hours to drive -- so I didn't taste. BIG mistake.
I bought a case so I could get a 10% discount, -- so naturally I haven't tried everything.
The two my husband and I did try were: 2010 Braganini Reserve Pinot Noir and the Bragannini 2010 Merlot. (The Pinot Noir was recommended by the man behind the counter -- so I bought three bottles!) The fruity undertones were marvelous in both wines, but the grape they use is just not suitable for these types of wines and there was a vague but distinct vinegary aftertaste leading me to think these are not wines you want to sit on a wine rack for very long. Both of these reds had zero body.
We turned both those bottles into Sangria. We are planning on giving the rest of the reds (with Sangria recipe attached) and being VERY selective about to whom they are given. Lordy, I hope the sweet fruit wines are OK -- but one hope's they are because this winery does get good reviews and that is the type of wine Michigan is known for.
Lesson learned -- don't do hasty winery shopping and next time I'll let the 19 year old get me back to Chicago.
