Tasting Notes: 2016 Parley Lake Barn Quilt Red (Frontenac & Marquette)

Lauren Voigt

Barn Quilt Red is consistently my favorite wine from Parley Lake Winery (Waconia, MN).

Flavors of juicy ripe cherry and vanilla, spice and savory notes, bright acidity and soft tannins. A blend mostly Frontenac with some Marquette. Paired here with a tasty Bulgogi bowl – wine might have been a touch fruit-forward for the food, but the acidity in the wine played well with the acidity in the sauce & pickled cucumbers.
