Country Red

Country Red Wine Details
Price: $8.50 per bottle

Description: A sweet, fruity red wine. This 100% Concord wine achieves its top seller status due to its distinct fruitiness and light, delicate finish. We love to break all of the rules so we encourage you to enjoy this wine with ice cubes and fruit juices.

Varietal Definition
This native American grape varietal (of the genus vitis labrusca) is used in making old- fashioned, "rustic" country-style red wines, often displaying what most people think of as a "grape jelly aroma." In fact, the Concord is widely used in the production of jellies and jams. This East Coast varietal produces wines that have been variously described as foxy, meaning they have a unique aroma/flavor profile variously described as wild and musky. Mogen David is perhaps the quintessential Concord wine.
