Ruby color. Aromas and flavors of buttery chocolate toffee, coconut creme pie, and figs with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a quick finish revealing notes of cocoa powder and nuts with soft tannins and moderate oak flavor. A very agreeable, savory, and balanced Red Blend that will cover a lot of bases; make sure to give this time to open up.

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.
