A blue/black-berried variety introduced in 2006 by the University of Minnesota. As the cousin of Frontenac, a well-known French-American hybrid, and the grandson of Pinot Noir. Marquette wines are typically medium bodied, with aromas of cherries, blackcurrants and blackberries. In better examples, more complex aromas such as tobacco and leather may also be exhibited, with spicy pepper notes on the finish.
