Ruby black color. Aromas and flavors of huckleberry pie and sour cherry bonbons and blossoms with a round, bright, fruity medium-full body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long finish imparting notes of spiced apple and pickled melon with crunchy, well-integrated tannins. A wonderfully pure, crisp and crunchy red blend that is a pleasure to drink and will excel at the table.

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.
