US Red & White Hybrids Reviews

Working Dog Winery 2016 Estate Bottled Traminette

Best Buy
Yellow straw color. Floral, perfumed aromas of honeysuckle, orange blossom, cherry candy, and marzipan with a lean, lively, fruity sweet medium body and a tingling, medium-length lemon glaze, passionfruit butter, concord grape juice, and almond creme finish with soft, fruit tannins and no oak flavor. Moscato lovers will rejoice in this floral and friendly wine.

Narmada Winery 2014 Midnight Red Chambourcin
89 points
Dark ruby black color. Candied, fruity aromas and flavors of cherry hard candies, chocolate covered anise, mocha, and blackberry with a glycerous, crisp, fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, charming, buoyant finish revealing shades of vanilla gelato, dark chocolate, raspberry coulis, and black peppercorn with silky, well-integrated tannins and moderate oak flavor. A great chewy and fruity wine for grilled meats.

Medium dusty ruby color. Aromas of charred grapes, wild cherry jam, tanned leather, and sweet pea blossom with a velvety, tangy, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a breezy sour cherry, chocolate chew candy, spinach with bechamel, and pomegranate finish with coating tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A smoky Marechal Foch for the the hunter’s table.

Medium dusty ruby color. Rustic aromas of animale, anise, red licorice, and buttermilk with a supple, tart, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a graceful, easy cherry pie, aromatic barks, and simple syrup finish with soft tannins and light oak flavor. A rustic Marechal Foch with intriguing aromas and a plush palate.
