Medium clear deep purple color. Mild, fruity, toasty peppery aromas of blueberry jam on light toast, eucalyptus, and chocolate mint with a crisp, dry medium body and a warming, engaging, medium-length cassis, plum butter, and cedar finish with medium tannins and moderate oak. Nice spice with a bite, a Saturday night wine.

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.
