Annually on the third Thursday in November, the first wine bottled to celebrate the new harvest is released for sale. Not all wineries produce a Nouveau, and in fact, St. James Winery is proud to be one of a select group of wineries that produces a Nouveau wine each year.
St. James Winery’s 2012 Nouveau is a lovely dry red, crafted from a select blend of Chambourcin and Rougeon grapes that were grown in the Ozark Highlands AVA. This wine is bursting with flavors of red cherries and fresh raspberries, with underlying notes of cocoa.
A light and fruity wine with low residual sugar, 2012 Nouveau will be a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving dinner table when paired it with turkey and all the trimmings.
Because Nouveau is made to be enjoyed while it is young, now’s the time to buy it, drink it, and enjoy it.
