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: Locations Wine

Locations Wine is an American wine brand that makes blends from a variety of countries using grapes grown in these regions and popular in those regions. This is a project by famous winemaker Dave Finney, who founded the label Orin Swift Cellars and The Prisoner. The varieties used are a reflection of the vast regions from which they are derived and include the tastes of Garnacha, Tempranillo and Monastrell from Spain, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Syrah from France and Negroamaro, Nero d'Avola and Barbera from Italy. they have no vintage designation and have minimalist labels with only the country's initials: F for France, E for Spain, I for Italy. Locations also produces several American wines from California, Texas, Oregon and Washington, which are also labeled with the respective state's initials. Most wines are red blends, but rosés are made entirely from French Grenache and Corsican varmentino.
