Trilogy Wine Details
Price: $17.99 per bottle

Description: Jost Vineyard’s 2003 Red Trilogy is the premier vintage of this limited edition wine. It was made from the best Baco Noir, Leon Millot and Marechal Foch grapes grown in Nova Scotia in 2003. Soft, ripe tannins support lengthy fresh berry fruit characters while aging in French oak barrels has provided smoky black cherry and anise flavours. This wine has great aging potential and pairs well with fine cheeses and hearty red meat dishes.

Varietal Definition
Baco Noir:
BA french-american hybrid grape used to make an intense red wine regarded by some as a good substitute for Cabernet Sauvignon . Capable of aging, its origins trace to the Folle Blanche and a native American strain of grape. Extensively grown in the cool northern regions of N. America.
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.
Leon Millot:
Early french-american hybrid grape very similar to Marechal Foch.
