Dusty ruby color. Tropical aromas of tropical rooibos tea, lychee, and kiwi with a round, crisp, fruity medium body and a smooth, engaging, medium-length grilled fruit and polished furniture finish with medium, crunchy tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A serious hybrid blend with heaps of fruit and sophistication.

Red Hybrid Blend

Serve in a Zinfandel Wine Glass
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.
