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.

About the Producer: Marques de Riscal

Marquês de Riscal is one of the oldest and most famous wineries in Rioja. Several traditional Rioja wines are produced here, mainly from Tempranillo, as well as white wine from Rueda. Nowadays, the property is also known for its characteristic hotel, designed by Frank Geary, who is part of the property, and for its wines. The company was founded in 1858 by diplomat Camilo Hurtado de Amesega, the Marquis de Riscal. He lived in Bordeaux and decided to bring French winemaking techniques to his property in Elciego. Their wines became so popular that they pulled a string to combat the counterfeiting of bottles, which is preserved in many Rioja wines today. More than 150 years later, the current owner, Marqués de Riscal, is the majority shareholder and oenologist. The Marqués de Riscal estate covers approximately 500 hectares (1,235 acres) of vineyards planted in Tempranillo, Graziano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mazuelo. They are planted in the vicinity of Elciego and are usually located on limestone terraces formed by the river Ebro. In addition, another 985 hectares (2,430 acres) are managed under contract. The elegant floral Reserva is the flagship in terms of production - around 5 million bottles are produced annually. It is aged for about two years in American oak and represents the classic Rioja style. On the other hand, the most modern Baron de Chirel is aged in French oak and is distinguished by its proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon, which is allowed in the Riscal for historical reasons. Introduced in 2006, Finca Torreia is a luxurious cuvée with a contemporary twist in a portfolio, while emphasizing elegance over super ripe fruit. In the 1970s, the company expanded its holdings to Rueda, a 170-mile (275 km) region southeast of Rioja. ... Riscal produces four wines in DO and has become the largest producer in its appellation with 135 hectares (333 acres) of Verdejo and 70 hectares (173 acres) of Sauvignon Blanc. The Marquis de Riscal is believed to have revived the reputation of the first variety, currently one of the most cultivated white varieties in Spain.
