Indigo color. Fruity aromas and flavors of raspberry tart, caramel-drizzled nuts, tobacco, and chocolate with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, medium-length finish with a suggestion of oak flavor. A fruity, juicy red that will pair well with cold-weather stews and bakes.

Chambourcin

Chambourcin is a red French hybrid grape that was developed in the early 1960s. It is planted in several states in the eastern US; the top examples come from Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania and New York; there are also examples made in Australia, where it sometimes is blended with Shiraz.

The grape has black juice, unlike most red grapes whose juice is clear. Thus a Chambourcin wine has deep purple color; flavors are of plum and black cherry. It is best consumed in its youth (two to three years) for its freshness.
