Benmarl Winery 2008 DeChaunac


I have to admit I am not a big fan of red hybrid grapes.  I am trying and have always maintained an open mind. On a recent tasting trip to Benmarl I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted the 2008 DeChaunac!

This wine is sourced from three different vineyards in the town of Marlboro where Benmarl is located.    On the nose I smelled earth.  Yes, very earthy.  The taste...cherry.  Very Cherry!  As in a lot of hybrids you tend to get a little acid on the taste.  Not this wine.  It isn't acidic at all.  Very enjoyable with hints of vanilla.

Good job Kristop!!
