Blends by the Bottle

Blends: We will argue with those who say that “Blends” or “Table Reds” are not “serious” wines because they are made from leftover grapes, or grape varietals not capable of “standing” on their own, or that they are priced too inexpensively to be good. Who says that wines have to be serious? What’s wrong with a little fun? What’s wrong with saving a little cash? And are these fools saying that blends from the Rhone or Bordeaux area are not seriously considered? Tie into a blend, and discover a whole new world of wine. They are tasty with or without food.

Here we use the term “Rhone” for a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre and/or Carignan. “Claret” is used to describe blends of Cabernet, Merlot, Cab Franc, Malbec and/or Petite Verdot.

Bottle selections are of limited quantity and all vintages are subject to change. Photos shown may not represent the vintage we carry.

 

Cinsault, Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvedre and Pinotage: Delightfully sweet/spicy, with peppery berries, cherries, with a smooth start and a dry finish. Named after the pruning tool shown on the label, a "secateur".  
$28 / Bottle
