Bright garnet color. Aromas and flavors of raspberry patch, strawberry leaf, ripe red plum, tomato vine, bouillon, and rose petal with a satiny, vibrant, petillant, dry light-to-medium body and a brisk finish evoking touches of underripe raspberry, dried white strawberry, cherry gelatin, white pepper, and cherry Danish. A cherry-bomb of a wine that will be best with a slight chill.

Other Red Hybrid

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.

Our Other Red Hybrid category is specifically for less common red hybrids, or new and innovative red hybrid grape cultivars.
