2004 Mary Michelle Cyntiana

This past weekend, I tried a bottle of 2004 Mary Michelle Cyntiana. It's a wine created right here in Illinois. The Cyntiana grape (a.k.a. the Norton grape), grows well in the southern Illinois climate. The wine is a light-bodied, medium-dry red with a fruity (but not sweet) flavor and a clean finish. At $10 a bottle, it's a great value. Try one out and support the Illinois wine industry!
