Produced almost exclusively in California, this varietal is naturally high in sugar, producing big flavorful wines that tend to be very fruity and often relatively high in alcohol.

Flavor Descriptors

Most examples are lushly textured and boast jammy cherry/berry fruit with a zesty spiciness and a brambly, freshly picked berry juiciness. Very ripe examples often show prune and raisin flavors, while aging in new oak barrels can add coffee, cocoa, and toasty oak notes.

Food Pairings

Strongly flavored beef dishes especially barbequed (ribs, brisket, burgers), chili, and Mexican chipotle tacos.
