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!!
