Dark garnet color. Baked aromas and flavors of oven dried tomatoes and berries, chocolate nuts, and pickled root vegetables with a supple, bright, dryish medium body and a medium-long finish that exhibits elements of spiced cherries, dried goji berries, and dusty minerals with leafy tannins. A tangy savory appetizing red that will be great with rustic fare.

'Other Red' is a catch-all category for both uncommon grape varietals and uncommon combinations of varietals. There are little pockets of other red varietals grown throughout the US. In California, Italian varietals such as Barbera, Gignolino, Primitivo, and Nebbiolo and esoteric Rhone varietals like Cinsault and Carignano can be found. Tempranillo, best known as the principal red variety of Spain’s Rioja, can also be found in small plantings in the Southwest where hot grown conditions favor the grape. Many producers throughout the US produce blends of Bordeaux with non-Bordeaux varietals such as Zinfandel, Petit Sirah, Syrah and even hybrids like Chambourcin that fall under our Other US Red category.
