Indigo color. Savory aromas and flavors of frosted blueberry and date pastry, eucalyptus honey, and grilled root vegetables with a slightly chewy, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and an even, interesting, medium-long finish with accents of spiced caramel apple, toffee, and cedar dust with crunchy, chewy tannins and moderate oak flavor. An attractive and expressive Cabernet driven red blend that will be quite versatile.

Red Hybrid Blend

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.
