Brick red color. Aromas and flavors of caramel coffee syrup, mocha, blackberry and black plum, and leather with a satiny, vibrant, dry medium body and a tingling, compelling, medium-length finish that shows impressions of blackberry, new car leather, chocolate covered blueberry, and mocha with chewy, medium tannins and light oak flavor. A nice everyday blend that will match well with most meal pairings and occasions; your Swiss Army knife red blend.

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.
