Labelle Granite State Red Wine (Non-Vintage) was a gift from a friend, $15.99 (approx.), 85 points, appeared as a light Cabernet purple/red color with a broad transparent rim.
Profuse blueberry with hints of hibiscus and sweet red cherry were aromatic.
The medium body had good acidity and mild tannin which began juicy, but trended with an almost spritz-like cola texture.
Flavors mirrored the aroma which trailed a bit thin into the finish with just a hint of the 11.5% alcohol.
For my money, this wine was a big improvement from the four NH Marechal Foch Red Wines I tasted earlier this year.
