Favorite Wine: General's Reserve Red

We really liked the reds here. Nothing at all wrong with the whites. The whites were good and representative of other good whites we have tried over the years. This winery excelled in our opinion in the red varietals such as Frontenac and Marachal Foch. The wines with these varietals were clean and smooth. No funky off-notes or harshness. Our favorite was General Reserve Red which was a blend of Frontenac and Syrah. A close second was Eric the Red which was a very nice Marachal Foch. Their Vineyard Red, a St. Croix, was nice. But as a strange twist it didn't rate as well with us because it didn't taste like the wines of this varietal we have had in Eastern Nebraska and Western Iowa where we were first exposed to this grape. Yeah I know: IRONIC. The town of Galena itself is just a gem. I had read about it and seen photos over the years and I was afraid once I finally got there it wouldn't live up to my expectations. Actually as hyped up as I was the town blew me away. We are definitely going to come back for a weekend. You gotta love main streets that wind and bend. Next visit we will take in the vineyards east of town in the Mississippi hills (not just the tasting room in town).
