Ruby garnet color. Aromas and flavors of marinated beets, ripe strawberry, baked blackberries with caramel, and graphite with a silky, lively, light-to-medium body and a graceful, medium-length finish with a suggestion of oak flavor. A juicy, very food-friendly red with ripe fruit balanced by pleasant earthiness.

Chancellor is a French hybrid grape that is grown in various parts of the US, including New York State, Michigan, Illinois and Nebraska. The wine is a simple, fruity red that is made as a stand-alone variety or sometimes blended with more complex red grapes.

At its best, Chancellor is a spicy, lightly tangy red that is meant for early consumption with hearty dishes such as pepper steak or stews.
