Opaque dusty garnet color. Aromas and flavors of toasted wild yeast, huckleberries, strawberry Kool-aid powder, and crushed gravel with a tangy, dry full body and an engaging, snappy finish with earthy, woody tannins and a suggestion of oak. A quaffable yet funky wine.

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.
