So what makes a blend different from your typical red wine? The term Red Blend refers to a red wine that was created with a combination of grape varieties, rather than just one. Blending the grape varietals helps to enhance the aroma and flavor of wine, and allows winemakers to integrate the best attributes of multiple grape varietals into one delicious blend that is fruit-forward, low in acidity, and easy to drink.
Our new Red Blend is a “Rhone-style Red”, meaning that it was made in the style of wines that come from France’s Southern Rhone Valley. Rhone-style reds are known for being bold, spicy, and tannic. Our Red Blend is made up of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah. The Grenache contributes bright, juicy flavors like blackberry, black cherry, and raspberry. Whereas Syrah, adds the structure and spice, making it the perfect blend of intricate flavors. Reining from the Edna Valley, near San Luis Obispo, this cool growing region surrounded by volcanic mountains and the Pacific Ocean produces grapes that are characterized by complexity and crispness.
