Violet color. Fruity, toasty aromas and flavors of caramelized huckleberries and oranges, macadamia gelato, roasted nuts, and tropical citrus and flowers with a silky, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a sleek, interesting, long finish conveying accents of vanilla cream and hint of violet candy with fine, silky tannins and light oak flavor. A fantastically pure and flavorful Chambourcin with great appeal.

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.
