Dusty black garnet color. Aromas and flavors of fruitcake, stewed plum, maple-bacon, and sweet tobacco with a slightly chewy, crisp, fruity medium body and a smooth, refreshing, medium-long finish that shows elements of black olive focaccia with moderate oak flavor. A hot-climate red full of baked-fruit-goodness and spicy oak character.

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.
