Opaque garnet black color. Aromas and flavors of grape salt water taffy, mocha, green stems, green plums, and cherry with an crisp, dry full body and an interesting, short finish with well-integrated tannins and a suggestion of oak. A better than average quality example.

Red Hybrid Blend

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.
