Wine Swap: Trade Cabernet Sauvignon for Chambourcin

Featured Video Play Icon

If you’re a fan of big, bold reds and looking for something new, we’ve got just the ticket. Trade in your beloved Cabernet Sauvignon for Chambourcin, a hybrid varietal that is one of the Commonwealth’s signature grapes.

Look for cherry, red fruit, and herbaceous notes on the palate, balanced by aromas of earth, tobacco, and vanilla, introduced during time spent in oak barrels. Serve alongside steak, or red-sauce pasta, or use the wine’s acidity to complement a wedge of soft cheese such as camembert or brie.
