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.
"It's a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The touch of Cabernet Franc enhances the berry flavors while keeping the tannins elegant and the mouthfeel balanced.This is an incredibly enjoyable Merlot delivering a classic California fruit forwardness with a sophisticated and well-layered character not found in wine at this price."
"Lively and vivacious, aromas suggest jasmine tea, lime, green pear and wet cement minerality. The palate blends the welcoming flavors of orange blossoms with cut-grass herbaciousness and chalky minerals."
"Organically Grown! Rich cherry and currant aromas with hints of cola , berry, oak-spice, and vanilla. In the mouth, balance & softness are apparent, yet with ripe tannins, rich cherry & currant flavors are highlighted."
"Medium-bodied Chardonnay with pineapple, soft vanilla, and notes of creamy,toasted oak with a long, lingering finish."
"91Points Wine Enthusiast. This is a delightfully fresh yet creamy wine that delivers a spectrum of styles and flavors. Anise and tart apple notes accent the floral-driven experience, unfettered by oak, which plays but a supporting role."
"A well-balanced, dry white wine with intriguing scents of green apples, pear and honeydew melon. This lighter-bodied wine has a bright crisp, mineral finish. This clean and crisp Pinot Grigio is best served chilled. It pairs well with light flavored foods such as mild cheeses, fresh fruit, grilled chicken and pasta dishes, like pesto and risotto."
"Aromas of gooseberry and kiwi play nicely with flavors of lychee, lemongrass and ruby grapefruit. The wine was fermented in stainless stell tanks and neutral, 5- to 6-year-old French oak barrels. It was not allowed to go through malolactic fermentation in order to retain its crisp acidity."
"Juicy apple, delicious pear and berry flavors paired with soft, smooth Chardonnay. Wonderfully refreshing with that fresh-from-the-orchard taste, you'll want to serve this one nice and cold."
"A fresh medium bodied red wine that showcases bright cherry and raspberry fruit notes, with highlights of toasted almonds. Youthfully bright, with light tannins, it has a soft refreshing finish."
