Country Concord

Country Concord Wine Details
Price: $7.49 per bottle

Description: In just a few short years, this wine has achieved a "cult-like" following. Assertive grapey aromas and flavors and a semi-sweet velvety smooth finish have made this wine a quick sellout yearly. 10% Residual Sugar

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.
