Dark garnet color. Attractive, sweet aromas and flavors of frosted mini-wheats, berry danish, and toasted marshmallows with a silky, bright, off-dry medium body and a polished, appealing, medium-length finish that presents overtones of nut brittle and vanilla tapioca with whipped cream with fine, soft tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A super fruity red for carefree sipping.

'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.
