“The BIG Picture!”
What Is a Wine Blend? One way is winemakers blend different wines to achieve a “house style.” This approach delivers consistent quality regardless of vintage.
Others add different perhaps, untraditional grapes as blends to deliver a unique taste!

The Wines
White Bordeaux
Red Bordeaux
Meritage [California Red blends]

The Grapes

White Bordeaux
Mostly from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle. The vast majority are Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Semillon richness creates an oily sensation on the palate complimented by Sauvignon Blanc, which creates balance with baked apples and pears, grapefruit, lemon.

 Red Bordeaux

Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot.
With years of experience behind them, the French use most of these grapes to some degree to overcome any vintage challenge. Medium to full body, with flavors of cherry, black currant, pencil lead, chocolate or cocoa. The finish can range from balanced to firm and dry.

 Meritage [California Red blends]

There is a good chance you are saying this wrong. It is the two words, “Merit” and “heritage!” We like to say “merit-TAGE” because it sounds wine like and reminds us of Hermitage.
They follow the rules of Bordeaux, 25,000 cases, or less of their best-blended wine.
The Meritage Association must approve wineries in the use of the name.
Must use the same grapes as the Bordeaux blended wines made in France.
