Lou’s Red

Lou’s Red Wine Details
Price: $9.99 per bottle

Description: Against a background of California Merlot grapes, Lou’s Red weaves in the brightness of Rosedale’s estate-grown St. Croix and the deep blackberry flavors of our Marechal Foch. The result is a delicate and complex fruit-forward wine with subdued tannins.

Varietal Definition
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.
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.
