Dusty garnet color. Aromas and flavors of black cherry, black plum, leather and umami, and dried spiced flowers with a velvety, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length finish with accents of black fruits, leather, red currant, and black tea. Fruity and meaty with a pleasing umami flavor that makes you want to grill.

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.
