Dusty ruby color. Herbal aromas and flavors of geranium, juniper, eucalyptus, bay, and cinnamon-spiced cranberry with a satiny, vibrant, dryish medium-to-full body and a graceful, delightful, medium-length finish that exhibits notes of cherry, licorice, espresso, and dark chocolate with moderate oak flavor. A distinctively herbal red with a charmingly rustic style.

Other red is a large category that covers many red wines from around the globe that are made from lesser-known varieties. These include Albarossa and Ruché from Piedmont in Italy, Touriga from Virginia and numerous blended reds from California, Washington and other states in the US as well as Argentina, Chile and Spain.

Many of these reds are robust and somewhat spicy; while they can age for several years in some cases, most are meant for consumption upon release. Pair them with a variety of foods, from tapas and empanadas to barbecued beef and young sheep's cheeses.
