Black ruby color. Savory aromas of olive tapenade with cheese, figs and gherkins, goji berry and leather, and bacon wrapped dates with a supple, bright, dryish medium-to-full body and a warming, appealing, medium-long blackberry tart, vanilla yogurt nuts and raisins, herbs and peppercorns, and cherry tea finish with well-integrated, dusty tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A round, mature Gran-Reserva-Roija-like red that will be stellar with a meaty meal or on its own.

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.
