Late. TP 2-1-24 (MN 1094 x ES 4-7-26) Tom Plocher intro, 2000.
Small dark blue thick-skinned berries in small compact clusters make a nice vinifera-type dry red wine or rosé. Good to blend with Marquette to create a Cabernet/Syrah/Merlot-style wine.
Highly resistant to disease and withstood no damage at –32° one cold Minnesota winter. Slow grower with open habit. Thanks, Tom, for permitting Fedco to be one of the few nurseries offering this grape in the U.S. Z4. (well-rooted bare-root vines)
