Blood red in color. One of the only 4 varietals that the pulp of the grape is red. Hints of American Oak, and currant. It’s very common to have a singular, heavy flavor with Alicante Bouschet. Heavy red fruit in the mouthfeel. Dark cherries, cooked fruit, reminiscent to a pie. Hints of graham cracker and a long dark finish. During summer, this would pair well with Tri-Tip topped with sautéed mushrooms and onions.
