Chateau Grand Traverse
A rich cherry port-style wine aged in oak and
"Port"Cherry Reserve is a delicious port-style dessert
wine made from 100% Northern Michigan cherries. It was
produced from a blend of late-picked Ballaton and Montmorency
cherries. After pressing and cool fermentation, the wine
was then aged in seasoned American oak barrels for 9 months to
soften and mellow. We then added Cherry Brandy that we
distilled from the same cherry blend to fortify the alcohol as well
as add additional complexity. Finally, we sweetened the
wine by adding natural cherry juice. The resulting wine
offers rich cherry pie character with a sweet and mouth-filling
is a sweeter dessert wine made from pure Northern Michigan
cherries. Aged for nine months in small oak barrels, it reveals
fragrant cherry aroma and delicious flavor. We added natural cherry
juice to sweeten and further integrate flavors and create smooth
balance. Enjoy after dinner with dense chocolates, robust cheeses,
or fresh roasted nuts. Serve at 55° - 65°

Treasure of a Cherry Port Wine
From Anonymous of Hudson, Wisconsin on 12/6/2016.
What a glorious cherry port/ dessert wine!! I got to taste this at Chateau Grand Traverse, and figured it to be a rare treasure - quintessential Michigan cherry wine, at its most deep, strong, succulently-sweet, full/wide-arrayed, and magnificent flavor! I packed a bottle to carry home, and sent this one to my son. This is some of the best of a wine-lovers trip-to-Michigan - in a bottle!!

First had this wine at a wine tasting at Chateau Grand Traverse. Liked it very much and was surprised since I really don't enjoy red wine. However, I bought a bottle to bring home and just loved having it available during the winter months. I'm glad I have found a red wine (port) that I enjoy.
fantastic dessert wine
From Matthew Husa of Columbus, Ohio on 3/2/2016.
I wasn't sure what to expect, but I really enjoyed this wine. I use it as a dessert wine with chocolate, baked goods, etc-but it could be sipped as an after dinner drink as well with cigars or not as others have mentioned. Its not as sweet or as smooth as some the older ports I've had, but it has a fantastic, delicate cherry flavor which I'm surprised that I like as much as I do. I don't know that this would replace my 20yr ports, but it is a fantastic and unique alternative with great value. I highly recommend at least trying it.
