How is our site here today like our significant other? Because every time you turn around it's wine, wine, wine! Ha ha! Isn't that great! Oh, hang on, someone's passing us a note... well, it looks like we're single again. Guess that's just one of those sacrifices one has to make in the name of comedy from time to time.

Say, if you're not doing anything later, do you want to split a couple bottles of- oh, right, you already read our joke up there. Sure. We understand.

You don't happen to have any friends looking for a date, do you? Hey, come back! WHY DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND COMEDY???

Features

2008 Braganini Reserve Meritage 750ml
 
Remarkably fresh aromas of cherry and red plum intertwine with oak that supports this sleek and precise wine.  An herbal note-like tobacco leaves in a cedar chest and mouthwatering acidity to accent the fruit.  Scents of green pepper and spice are given a modest lift by an olive-green herb component.  On the palate, the wine is light, lean and peppery, with a dollop of red cherry fruit that carries through to the finish.
 
2010 Braganini Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
 
Capturing currant and blackberry fruit at the zenith of ripeness, this is smooth, plush and layered, with a mix of mocha, black cherry, cedar and cassis all flowing together in a steady stream. Firms up nicely on the finish, yet the flavors keep rushing through. Amazingly complex, with great structure, depth, richness and concentration.  Food Pairing: Aged Cheese, Blue-veined cheese, Duck, Goose, Goat Cheese, Grilled Beef Steak, Pasta with Tomato Base, Stew or Casserole.
 
 
2010 Braganini Reserve Cabernet Franc 750ml
 
This Braganini Reserve shows what the variety is able to do in Michigan’s cold climate. Aromas of Bing cherries and raspberries interlace with allspice, followed by flavors of cranberries and vanilla. The structure on the palate is rich and intense, yet has a velvety tannic finish that will dance on your palate. Quite impressive! A lighter wine than Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon, this Cabernet franc will please with its intricate complexity. Savor a taste of southwest Michigan summer. Food Pairing: Duck, Goose, Game Birds, Roast Beef, Soft Cheese.
 
2009 Braganini Reserve Chancellor Noir 750ml
 
The 2009 Braganini Reserve Chancellor is yet again, a true masterpiece. Chocolate covered espresso bean and sweet cherry vanilla aromas lead to a velvety, medium-body entry of super ripe currant, black raspberry, and Bing cherry flavors. Finishes with silky tannins and a hint of smoky clay. Deliciously inviting on its own or with any divine feast. Food Pairing: Duck, Goose, Game Birds, Game Meat, Grilled Beef Steak, Ham, Stew or Casserole.
