Rochette Rouge

Rochette Rouge Wine Details

Description: a semi-dry red wine made from Buffalo grapes. It has a marvelous grape aroma. Best served with beef, pasta, or with any dark chocolate. The 2008 and 2009 vintages are currently available.

Varietal Definition
Buffalo (Herbert xWatkins) From Cornell University's Geneva, New York experiment station. Blue-black, slipskin, with berries much like Concord in appearance, but on smaller clusters. Flavor is fruity and spicey, with less of the labrusca flavor than most American varieties.
