Meritage Red Blends

We tend to think of wines as the grape variety that they’re made from: Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to name a few. But blending wines, allows winemakers to offer more complexity and texture to their single variety counterparts. For example adding Merlot to Cabernet Sauvignon can round out the harsh tannins giving it a more balanced flavor.
