Midwest Wine Press is a terrific website covering the midwest wine scene.  Somerset Ridge is currently featured in an article  about the Crimson Cabernet grape, which is a cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Norton.

crim-5x7v6-v2As many of you know, Somerset Ridge was the first winery in the world to commercially produce wine from Crimson Cabernet.

That first wine, our 2010 vintage, won a Medal of Excellence (gold medal) from the Jefferson Cup Invitational wine competition last year.  The wine is lovely, with terrific dark fruit and cedar characteristics.

Cheers to Midwest Wine Press and journalist Danny Wood for covering what we are doing here between the coasts!
