Clear dark ruby color. Aromas of match head, grilled watermelon slices, pomegranate-vanilla gelato, and raspberry candy straws with a supple, bright, fruity medium body and a delightful, short-lived baking spices, Swisher sweets, ripe plums, varnish, and cherry candies finish. A spicy and lovable red with big fruit notes.

Other Red Hybrid

For the wine consumer jaded by the chocolate and vanilla worlds of Cabernet and Chardonnay, a little diversity in the nightly wine selection can offer a welcome respite. Though hardly the "next new thing," a number of regional specialties around the country are waiting to surprise the unsuspecting wine tourist and provide a welcome change of pace.

A number of these wines are made in states such as Wisconsin or Missouri, from grapes such as Marechal Foch, Frontenac and Marquette; they are idiosyncratic with tangy flavors and moderate tannins; they are meant for early consumption.

Our Other Red Hybrid category is specifically for less common red hybrids, or new and innovative red hybrid grape cultivars.
