Medium dusty ruby color. Rustic aromas of animale, anise, red licorice, and buttermilk with a supple, tart, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a graceful, easy cherry pie, aromatic barks, and simple syrup finish with soft tannins and light oak flavor. A rustic Marechal Foch with intriguing aromas and a plush palate.

Marechal Foch

Serve in a Zinfandel Wine Glass
Marechal Foch is a French hybrid grape that is planted in Canada, Wisconsin and New York state, as it has good resistance to the cold. The wines are soft and fruity - sometimes jammy - with flavors of berry fruit, tomato and a hint of bread with tart acidity. They are priced in the $10-$20 range and should be consumed early with root vegetables and lighter game.
