Brimstone Hill 2007 Vin Rouge Superior

This Brimstone Hill Vineyard wine is a blend of Foch, Chambourcin and Chancellor. This wine is produced from 100% grapes grown in the Hudson River region.   I am keeping an open mind with this, because I am not a big fan of red hybrids, but you may be.

At first I got a nose that smelled like a cigar box.  It soon led to a hint of menthol and bell pepper.

As I tasted this wine my first initial flavor was a sour cherry.  This soon led to some dark berry fruit.  This is a  very acidic wine with a hint of white pepper on the finish.

This wine is available in the tasting room at Brimstone Hill Vineyards.
