I recently served Whitecliff Vineyards Redtail wine with a burger and rib dinner I cooked. I am the first to admit I am not a red hybrid grape fan and this wine is a blend of DeChaunac, Noriet, Frontenac and Merlot and is a Hudson Heritage Red. It went very well with the ribs and burgers.
On the nose came strong aromas of blackberry and earth with a hint of smokiness in the background. On the palate it was bery smooth. Lots of black fruit and blackberries. There was a hint of sweetness in the wine, which leads me to believe there is a bit of residual sugar, but not to much to make a sweet wine. On the finish I found it a little musty but lingering with blackberries.
