Bright brown brick red color. Aromas of ground espresso and cocoa powder, black cherry, cola, and tropical fruit tea with a supple, crisp, fruity medium body and a smooth, buoyant sour cherry jam on buttered raisin toast, plum tart, chocolate mouse with berry sauce, and candied orange peel finish with medium, coating tannins and moderate oak flavor. A pleasant gulpable red blend that will be very versatile.

'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.
