Ruby black color. Aromas and flavors of smoked nuts, roasted red berries, and dark chocolate with a silky, tangy, fruity light-to-medium body and a seamless, brisk finish imparting accents of dried sour cherry, vanilla custard, and walnut with fine, chewy tannins and no oak flavor. A fruity, creamy red wine sipper that is sure to please the crowd.

'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.
