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.

Marechal Foch

Serve in a Zinfandel Wine Glass
Marechal Foch is a French hybrid grape that is planted in Canada, Wisconsin and New York state, as it has good resistance to the cold. The wines are soft and fruity - sometimes jammy - with flavors of berry fruit, tomato and a hint of bread with tart acidity. They are priced in the $10-$20 range and should be consumed early with root vegetables and lighter game.
