Ain’t no party like a red blend party — both throwback and cutting edge for red wine lovers. Whether your style is more ancient rustic field blend or super serious Super Tuscan, blending red grapes offers worlds of opportunity from kaleidoscoping fruit flavors to deep layers of complexity. Get on out there, the party don’t stop!
Big Red Blend
If you’re a red-head with a penchant for big, juicy blends, then Lodi, California, is your prime destination. Steeped in renown for their old vine Zinfandels, Lodi is sun-drenched and prolific with ripe red wines. The 90+ Cellars Big Red Blend is very that — plush and pleasant Lodi Zin leads the blend, brimming with both fresh and jammy blackberry, strawberry, and black raspberry, all grounded by notes of warm cedar and vanilla on the juicy finish.
A wine that’s very of the moment, Three Rivers Red is a blend of Columbia Valley Malbec, Syrah, and Merlot, making for a showcase of cranberry, red cherry, herbs, and spice. Washington red wines have many ripening factors in the mix, but the makeup of this blend ensures an abundance of fruit while retaining savory and tart components to add complexity and body to the bright core.
From the south of France and in the spirit of the Rhône Valley, the French Fusion blend from 90+ Cellars is a nimble balance between dark fruit and earth for those with an inclination towards Old World wines. One of the most traditional bottlings in the 90+ Cellars lineup, the blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre shows classic notes of plum, black pepper, and raspberry bramble, aromatic graphite, gravel, and cured meat rounding out that Rhône-at-a-value style.
Enjoy these wines anytime thru October 6th, at any of our Top Ten Locations.
