Light siam color. Aromas of plum vinegar, cranberry scented candle, red apple shrub, kraut, water chestnuts, banana peel, and mouse with a supple, shrill, dryish thin body and a tingling, brisk finish with no oak flavor. An unusual and savory option for the hunter’s table.

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.
