Black violet color. Aromas of black plum, honey, roasted nuts, and rye crisps with a satiny, soft, moderately sweet light-to-medium body and a smooth, short-to-medium mixed berry jam and concord grape pie finish with a suggestion of oak flavor. An off-dry red quaffer; try serving with a slight chill.

Marechal Foch

Wine Glass Zinfandel.jpg
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.
