Nebraska Red

Nebraska Red Wine Details
Price: $14.00 per bottle

Description: Consistently the favorite of all JAV’s dry red wines. A blend of St. Croix, St. Vincent and Foch, our Nebraska Red was aged in American Oak for nearly a year before bottling. This red features a wonderful earthy and slightly vegetative nose that changes to a spicy, almost peppery sensation on the palate. The lingering finish on this wine is impressive. The winemaker suggests that you drink this wine while it’s still young, but it will age well. The perfect food pairing with Nebraska Red would be typical “American” cuisine, such as pizza or hamburgers. However, there is enough backbone with this wine, that it would also hold up very well with a good Nebraska steak!

Varietal Definition
Marechal Foch:
A french-american hybrid grape, with french Alsace Gamay origins, noted for producing deeply colored and strongly varietal wines considered by some to have a "Burgundian" character. Also known under the name Foch.
St. Croix:
St. Croix is the one red wine variety that Elmer Swenson has released to date. It is similar to his white variety, Kay Gray, in that it is hardy, low acid and disease-resistant.
This variety has high acidity, when fermented it produces a well-balanced dry red table wine. The wine has a deep blue-red color when young, but when aged the blue pigment is deposited & the wine becomes quite stable.
