Varietal Definition
Marechal Foch:
A french-american hybrid grape, with french Alsace Gamay origins, noted for producing deeply colored and strongly varietal wines considered by some to have a "Burgundian" character. Also known under the name Foch.


Todd says...
This is a very good port style wine. It is sweet, but not sugary, with a string cherry nose and taste. We served it to dinner guests who had no idea that good wine is produced in West Virginia.
