Deep purple color. Fruity, spicy, attractive aromas and flavors of huckleberry jam on pineapple scone and apricot cobbler with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a graceful, interesting, medium-long finish imparting notes of vanilla nut brittle, tropical fruit salad, and hint of oak with well-integrated, dusty tannins and light oak flavor. A wonderfully flavorful and fruity Chambourcin with great style.

Chambourcin

Wine Glass Zinfandel.jpg
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.
