Jarhead Red is a red blend produced by Jarhead Wine Company, a winery located in California. Typically, the wine is predominantly composed of Merlot with some Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot that add tannins and acidity to the soft and plummy Merlot. Grapes are crushed and fermented in inert vessels. Prior to bottling, the lots were aged for around 17 months to round out the tannins and harmonise the separate blending components.
