Burnt sienna color. Aromas and flavors of black plum, mocha, bell pepper, and raspberry with a silky, crisp, dry medium body and a tingling, interesting, breezy finish displaying nuances of cocoa dusted coffee beans and black fruit juice with soft, well-integrated tannins. Lean green herbs with pops of red fruit; pair at a cook out with grilled sausage and a summer garden salad.

Other Red

Other red is a large category that covers many red wines from around the globe that are made from lesser-known varieties. These include Albarossa and Ruché from Piedmont in Italy, Touriga from Virginia and numerous blended reds from California, Washington and other states in the US as well as Argentina, Chile and Spain.

Many of these reds are robust and somewhat spicy; while they can age for several years in some cases, most are meant for consumption upon release. Pair them with a variety of foods, from tapas and empanadas to barbecued beef and young sheep's cheeses.
