Sunburst amber color. Aromas and flavors of sweet bramble berry mix, strawberry skittles, and white strawberry and lavender soap with a round, vibrant, fruity medium body and a tingling, compelling, medium-length finish with notes of red skittles and strawberry watermelon. Add a splash of club soda to balance out the sweetness and for a refreshing spritzer at your next picnic.

Other Red Hybrid

Serve in a Zinfandel Wine Glass
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.
