Dusty black ruby color. Rustic, peppery aromas of smoked peppercorns and cardamom, stable floor, and dried plum with a chewy, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity full body and an engaging, medium-long molasses, peppered jerky, and cream cheese frosting finish with crunchy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A savory and smoky red blend for delicious pairings.

Other US Red

'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.
