    Wine Maker Comments:
    Pinot Noir is the most prolific red wine grape we grow and bottle. We have been committed to making the northwest Michigan version of this variety since day one. Five different vineyard sites provide us with fruit, this makes us able to be selective with what we produce. We strive to make a very fresh and fruit driven style with little or no barrel aging. The Arcturos brand of this wine is meant to be our front line Pinot Noir. There is a balance of vibrant fruit and spicy complexity that comes from time in the barrel. Oak used for this bottling is mostly older, 100% French and is roughly 10-15% new, depending on the vintage. If you are looking to try a Michigan version of what the French call Burgundy, this is your wine!
