Garnet violet black color. Bright aromas and flavors of black raspberry in cream, chocolate nougat bar, and delicate spice with a silky, lively, fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, delightful, medium-length finish with notes of sour cherry tart, honeyed citrus, nutskin, and pepper jelly with crunchy tannins and moderate oak. A robust fruit-driven red that is sure to please.

'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.
