If SWMBO liked sweeter wines this would be a no brainer.
The description in the late harvest says it was harvested around 22 Brix. I usually pay attention to this number in red wines and 22 doesn't seem late at all. It would actually seem early.
In that part of the US sometimes you are lucky to get as high as 22 brix. I worked at a winery in NW PA and anything over 23-24 brix was very unusual. I remember seeing grapes come in at 20 brix! We sometimes had to add sugar because mother nature just wasn't getting the job done. And if you don't harvest by mid October, you are taking a big chance on freezing temps.
My dogs like me, that is important.
