Inviting aromas of blackberry jam, roasted nuts, ripe cherry, and black peppercorns with a velvety, crisp, fruity medium-to-full body and a sleek, intriguing, medium-length blueberry compote, black toast, fennel, and caramel finish with well-integrated tannins and moderate oak flavor. A rich and fruity red blend with a peppery backbone; US red blend drinkers and Aussie Shiraz-lover alike will be drawn to this wine.

'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.
