Harmony Hill Serenade 2006

65% chambourcin, 35% marechal foch, this earthy red blend is an interesting ohio wine. this blend spends 6 months in appalachian (ohio) oak barrels and has a nose of earth, black cherry, some strawberry and cedar. on the palate, sexy, earthy strawberry and cherry flavors come through. the flavor reminded me a bit of some pinot noirs i have had. light to medium tannins and more cedar notes in the finish. very smooth, very intense flavors. i was very intrigued by the taste of this wine. sells for about $11, so it is budget friendly. i have a second bottle laying for a later taste and i am hoping it improves with time in the cellar, but it will be difficult to improve upon this really nice red.
