2016 Original Cyn

$23.66

The Wine:

A lusty red wine made from Cynthiana (a.k.a. “Norton” or “Cabernet of the Ozarks”) grapes.  Aged primarily in American oak barrels.  [no residual sugar]

The Grape:

Cynthiana: (sin-thee-AN-uh) A native American grape that produces a rich, full-bodied red wine with character that is often compared with Cabernet Sauvignon. Ever since a Missouri Cynthiana won the First Medal of Merit at the Vienna World Exposition of 1873, this varietal has repeatedly received rapturous reviews from red wine lovers. Brooding dark color accompanied by a bouquet of spicy oak, black cherry, vanilla, and hints of coffee and cocoa. These flavors complement red meats and other richer foods. Blumenhof grows 2 acres of Cynthiana.
