North Carolina Wine TV Review:
Carolina Heritage Chamborcin-Cynthinana is a blend of vinifera and muscadine grapes, both grown in the Yadkin Valley. There is some red fruit and cinnamon on the nose of this light to medium body wine, but no strongly pronounced smells. The wine starts with a bit of sweetness and fruit that transitions to oak, but the end of finish is very harsh. The harsh finish takes this average wine to something that is not very good.
Rating: according to the North Carolina Wine Ratings Scale
Availability: From the winery and select wine stores
About Chambourcin-Cynthiana (from the winery):
Dry red wine made from a blend of Chambourcin (French-American hybrid) and Cynthiana/Norton (native American) grapes. Both varieties grow well in the Yadkin Valley and, when blended, produce a rich red dry wine with a fruity, nutty taste. Wonderful with red meats, cheeses and dark chocolates.
