Clear dusty ruby color. Aromas and flavors of sundried tomato with wax, honeyed berries, toffee, and beet and tomato juice with a satiny, bright, fruity medium-to-full body and an even, engaging, medium-long finish that exhibits notes of borscht, orange caramel fudge, peach creme brulee, and pepper sauce with light oak flavor. An interesting combination of sweet and savory notes makes this tasty, juicy red a versatile choice.

'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.
