Arbor Red Wine Details

Description: A sweet red wine with medium body that is loaded with wonderful flavors and aromas reminiscent of Grandma's back yard arbor. A combination of Concord and Steuben grapes make this wine a walk down memory lane. Serve Chilled.

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.
American native hybrid grape used to make mild, grapey, red wine. Found mostly in the Eastern and Mid-West regions of the U.S.
