Silvery pink color. Fruity, creamy aromas and flavors of berry buttercream on pound cake, chocolate covered raisins, and toasted brazil nuts with a satiny, crisp, dryish medium-to-full body and an effortless, medium-length finish displaying notes of nut skin, grilled cedar plank, beets, and earth with crunchy, fruit, chewy tannins. A dry red blend tailor-made for a meaty meal.

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.
