red blend

Wine blends can offer more complexity than single varietal wines, as winemakers can enhance a wine's qualities with the different flavors. Some common red blends are: Bordeaux Blends (made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Verdot, Carmenere, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec); Super Tuscans (made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Syrah, and Petite Verdot); Meritages (usually made from the same type of varietals as Bordeaux Blends); and Rhône-Style Blends (Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône, and Côte-Rôtie).
