Americus
Americus

Americus is a dry and bold red with savory dark fruit notes and loads of pepper on the palate. A blend of Cabernet Franc and the French hybrid grape Noiret, the rich tannin structure pairs well with grilled meats & heavier dishes. This is winemaker Amy LaBelle’s answer for a bold & full-bodied red, sourced from grapes grown in a cooler climate. Compare this wine to a Shiraz.

Infused with French oak up to 6 months.

Can be bottle-aged up to 10 years.

About Cabernet Franc:  Cabernet Franc (along with Sauvignon Blanc) is one of the parent grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon. It produces wines similar in style to the more famous Cabernet Sauvignon, but lighter bodied, with less tannin and more aroma.  It can have herbaceous (green pepper) aromas.

About Noiret:  Moderately cold-hardy grape created from a complex cross in 1973 at Cornell University and it withstands temperatures to -14 °F. Noiret produces wines with a deep red color, good tannins, and unusually robust pepper overtones.

This wine is not sweet… it’s like a dry, light Merlot in body and style with rich but soft notes of vanilla and fresh fruit. Made with 100% New Hampshire wild blueberries and aged in French oak, this light dinner wine has something for everyone. LaBelle Winery Blueberry Wine is light and refreshing for spring and summer, yet full bodied enough to accompany pork, turkey, chicken, pasta and even grilled meats. This is the first wine ever made by winemaker Amy LaBelle!
