Wine: Hello, hybrids
2016 La Garagista Damejeanne ($45). This “bright, floral, spicy” Vermont red features the Marquette grape, developed at the University of Minnesota. Think gamay with more personality.
2015 Keuka Lake Vineyards Gently Dry Vignoles ($17). A cross between pinot noir and a white hybrid produces this “crisp, zingy,” and beach-perfect white.
2015 Hudson-Chatham Casscles Vineyard Baco Noir Reserve ($26). Baco noir is big in New York’s Hudson Valley. This one offers complex black cherry and savory flavors. ■
