Episode 141: Carolina Heritage 2008 Chambourcin-Cynthiana

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: ★½☆☆☆ according to the North Carolina Wine Ratings Scale

Price: $10

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.

About Carolina Heritage Vineyard (from the winery):
Carolina Heritage Vineyard & Winery is the first USDA-Certified Organic Vineyard & Winery in NC. The self-contained operation includes 9.5 acres of vineyard, a fully-functioning estate winery and tasting room.

    We have yet to find a descent North Carolina Norton, much less any other wine(s). 225 Norton wineries today in 23 states, but none acceptable in NC.
