Black ruby color. Savory aromas and flavors 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, delightful, medium-long finish displaying impressions of blackberry tart, vanilla yogurt nuts and raisins, herbs and peppercorns, and cherry tea 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' 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.
