Violet color. Aromas and flavors of nut brittle, chocolate berry bar, and hint of tomato leaves and ink with a satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, appealing, medium-long finish with notes of mulberry, rhubarb, and pomegranate with moderate oak flavor. A chewy, earthy Chambourcin that will work well at the table.

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.
