Violet color. Savory, toasty aromas and flavors of marinated mulberries and beets, chocolate nuts and cherries, vanilla yogurt, and lightly smoked nuts and pipe tobacco with a supple, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a sleek, complex, long finish with shades of cedar, dried peach and pear, and lemon curd with well-integrated, fine tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A remarkably vivacious, balanced, and mouthwatering red hybrid with great versatility and food affinity.

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.
