Dark dusty garnet color. Herbal aromas of dried cherry and strawberry, worn leather, oregano, and tarragon with a satiny, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, complex, medium-long salted heirloom tomato, chocolate ganache, roasted nuts, and bay leaf finish with well-integrated tannins and no oak flavor. A delicious and interesting blend from Paso Robles that will add plenty of nuance to your next dinner pairing.

'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.
