Granite State Red

Granite State Red Wine Details

Description: In this rich, velvety decadence, we combine wine made from ripe blueberries & the French hybrid red grape Marechal Foch to create a uniquely New England red wine. Aged in French oak, the touch of blueberry makes this red grape wine a dry yet bold crowd pleaser. It is silky smooth on the palate with berry flavors, floral notes & soft tannins. Perfectly balanced, this wine is neither sweet nor tart, and is excellent with rich, spicy main courses or sweet desserts, or for sipping in front of a roaring fire. Pair with steak, grilled meats & Italian fare.
