The United States is large, geographically diverse wine region. All fifty states grow wine grapes, and the U. S. wine industry is thriving. Wines in the United States are made from various native and hybrid varietals as well as various ‘international' varietals. Much of the Eastern seaboard, the Central United States, the South and Southwestern states feature native and hybrid varietals. For example, Kahn's home state of Indiana grows Concord, Niagara, Vignoles, Seyval Blanc, Millot, Traminette, and Catawba, among others. These grapes produce delicious wines that are enjoyed throughout the United States, but have rarely gained international fame. There are four important states in the United States that have wine-growing regions that have gained wide international acclaim for their quality Vitis Vinifera wines. These states are: California, Washington, Oregon and New York.
"Enticing notes of ripe plums and berries weave through the aromas and silky flavors of our Woodbridge Merlot. Nuances of spices and toasty vanilla, from aging in small oak barrels, linger on the soft finish."
"A sensory overload of ripe fruits and savory garden herbs that overwhelms the nose. Summer plums and sweet cherries create a full entry and even bigger mouthfeel than lingers and languishes with the toasty vanilla from the American oak barrels. Remaining silky and smooth in texture, the wine finishes with sturdy tannins."
"A delicious blend of full-bodied Merlot and natural blackberry flavors, two tastes join forces for an unexpected favorite. Tantalizing!."
"Refined and subtle, Pinot Noir is a reminder that a red wine need not be highly extracted to be enjoyable. We play up the natural tendencies of the grape to display medium red color, light body, firm acidity, varietally appropriate aromas and flavors (red currant, raspberry, cranberry, rhubarb, cola) and use a gentle hand with the French oak used in aging."
"Bright blackberry and cherry fruit balanced with toasty American oak."
"This Merlot opens with aromas of red currant, vanilla and baking spices. On the palate you'll find flavors of raspberry, blackberry and cola with round tannins softened by seven months of aging in French and American oak."
"Fruit aromas of blackcurrant and raspberry join with fragrant notes of nutmeg, thyme and lavender; big and luscious mouthfeel with rich tannins lead to a lasting finish. This refreshing, fruity Pinot Noir is wonderfully versatile on the table and can be served with a wide range of foods, including pork, chicken, lamb and wild salmon."
"Appealing aromas of black cherry, earth and a touch of vanilla. Plush tannins and balanced acidity support core flavors of ripe Bing cherry, bittersweet cocoa powder, and delicate hints of sage. Enjoy on its own or with salmon, Veal Parmesan or grilled lamb."
"Made from Syrah, Tempranillo, and Grenache, this wine is big, rich and complex. The aromas carry through to the palate; raspberry, blueberry pie, tobacco, maple syrup, soy sauce, crushed autumn leaves, and black pepper are all wrapped up in a nicely structured package. It has a meaty, earthy component, and bold chewy tannins. The finish is full and fleshy, long and silky."
"Intense wild berry and mocha flavors are accented by black cherry, currant, and anise notes. Well-structured yet subtle tannins create a luxuriously smooth mouthfeel followed by a complex, rich, and elegant finish."
