2020 Chambourcin


Tasting Notes

Dense, inky purple with a glowing ruby rim. Doris plum, blackberry, liquorice and some cedar char, wet concrete, and graphite notes on the nose. Rich and mouthfilling with ripe tannins and a firm yet easygoing personality. Fresh, lively acidity, balanced yet with room to integrate over the next 23 years.

Drink 2022 2025. 13.5%.

DR Chris Howard


Pair this PA wine with hearty main dishes like seared steak or pasta with red sauce. The acidity and lightness also make a lovely counterpart to soft cheeses such as camembert and brie. Lastly, a classic Chambourcin mate is chocolate,

Chambourcin is a relatively new grape — it was commercialized in 1963 — but this French-American hybrid has taken off thanks to its vibrant red color and supple mouthfeel. It is a teinturier, meaning it has red-tinged juice (most red grapes produce clear liquid, with the color coming from the skins).
