Harmony Hill Chamber Suite 2007

another red from the folks at harmony hill. a semi-sweet wine that may appeal to some new wine drinkers who aren't quite ready to plunge into some real big wines. 60% chambourcin, 40% marechal foch. similar blend to the serenade i talked about earlier with one big difference. this is aged in stainless steel so there is nothing earthy or woody about this. the nose has some floral characteristics, along with cherry notes. the palate is all black cherry. especially in the finish. a big fruit bomb of a wine. reminds me of a black cherry pie. if you like a sweeter wine, this one is for you. for me, it is just a bit too sweet. it would go well with some bar-b-que, ribs, or other meats served with a sweeter sauce. sells for $10.95.

For me, this is a nice transition wine from semi-sweet whites to reds. For people who are new to wines and have had a bad experience with a big, overpowering red, this is one you don't have to be afraid of.
