Here we go on the hybrid red Foch, actual the correct name of the grape is Marechal Foch. The grape does well in cold climate and is grown in the Hudson Valley. I’m not a big red hybrid fan but I went into this Brimstone 2008 Foch with a very open mind and was pleasantly surprised.

The nose on the wine was toasty oak and had some notes of cherry behind the oak.  On the palate the wine was very acidic. Foch is an acidic wine.  There were notes of cherry and blackberry.  The wine was thin in texture and very soft.
