Medium violet color. Herbal aromas of plum butter, tomato leaf, dill, black licorice, and fennel with a supple, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a breezy toasty bread crusts and cranberry finish with leafy tannins and a suggestion of oak. An herbal Chambourcin that may pair well with Eastern European fare.

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.
