My favorite red wine was Ferguson 2010 'Chambourcin' ($17/bottle) made with 100 percent Chambourcin, a French-American hybrid grape. It had a delightful taste of smoky peppers and blackberry.
My husband's favorite was Ferguson 'Judge's Verdict' ($16/bottle), a red table wine, made with a blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This barrel aged wine was dry with a very spicy nose and almost incense like flavor.
We decided not to try the fortified wines because we are more dry wine drinkers.
