Chambourcin shows its true colors here with a deep, dense red color and intense, aromatic flavors. Spice and berry on the nose, followed by cherry, vanilla and toast on the palate are both integrated and opulent. There's a touch of angular smoke on the wine but overall, it's a good example of the grape. Pair with lamb or red meat dishes.
