Medium dusty garnet color. Fruity, herbal aromas of watermelon, spiced cherry compote, exquisite tobacco, black tea, and oregano and basil with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium body and a warming, involved, medium-length clove, dried orange peel, black pepper, and gingerbread finish with well-integrated, medium tannins and moderate oak flavor. An elegantly balanced wine that is at once fruity and savory, rich and bright.

Chambourcin

Wine Glass Zinfandel.jpg
Serve in a Zinfandel Wine Glass
Chambourcin is a red French hybrid grape that was developed in the early 1960s. It is planted in several states in the eastern US; the top examples come from Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania and New York; there are also examples made in Australia, where it sometimes is blended with Shiraz.

The grape has black juice, unlike most red grapes whose juice is clear. Thus a Chambourcin wine has deep purple color; flavors are of plum and black cherry. It is best consumed in its youth (two to three years) for its freshness.
