Deep purple color. Aromas of turkish bazaar incense, strawberry tootsie roll pop, bacon bits and dijon mustard, and blanco tequila with a medium-full body and a medium-long marinated beets, carrots and mustard greens, smoked jerky, pomegranate and sour cherry, and bitter cocoa powder finish. A very savory, distinctive, and dry red wine that will excel at the hunter’s table.

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.
