Critical Acclaim

Wilfred Wong
The 2017 1000 Stories Gold Rush Red deftly combines many California's best red grape varieties—Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Pinot Noir—into a generous and mouth-filling fusion of beautifully-ripened red fruit flavors. TASTING NOTES: This wine is swimmingly smooth. Its aromas and flavors of red, blue, and black fruits nicely combine with smoky oak, and licorice nuances make the wine a complete package. Pair it with barbecued baby back ribs. (Tasted: May 31, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Discover Blended Red Wine Wines

In the United States, a red mix is any American wine that isn't produced from a single grape type. It's an odd classification since many, if not all, red wines are and have always been mixes. A grand cru Bordeaux produced entirely of Cabernet, as well as Chiantis made entirely of Sangiovese, are the exception rather than the norm. In addition, California law only requires a wine's label to contain 75% of the grape type.

Winemakers combine grapes because it enables them to create a wine in a sense. A splash of Merlot may help soften Cabernet's tannins, while a dash of Syrah can give watery, inexpensive Pinot some punch. Blending is common in several regions: Rioja, for example, has traditionally blended Tempranillo, Graciano, and Garnacha. Many modern, inexpensive red blends, on the other hand, are simply created for mass appeal—lots of superripe, black fruit and no acidity—using whatever varietals would suffice.
