Bright dusty ruby color. Fruity, exotic aromas of forest berries, violet and gardenia, tomato vine, and polished wood and spiced bark with an thin body and an interesting, breezy fresh toast, black plum, cinnamon yogurt, and quince and persimmon finish with leafy tannins and light oak flavor. An earthy Chambourcin that can stand up to hefty meals.

Chambourcin

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.
