Chambourcin, Jansen Estate Vineyard

Chambourcin, Jansen Estate Vineyard Wine Details

Description: Perhaps the most successful red of the '09 vintage for its typical robe of spice, smoke and dark fruit up front. Uniquely subdued in its light to medium body, this early release has grown up in the bottle in a few months and promises to be exciting company for the next year or two.

Varietal Definition
A french-american hybrid used to make red wines with fruity flavors and some herbaceousness. Grown in the cooler regions of Eastern U.S. and Canada. Decreasing acreages also found in Europe; due to stringent European Union rules these varieties cannot be blended with traditional varieties.
