Bordeaux Red Blend
Produced exclusively in France, the red Bordeaux blend is composed primarily of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and cabernet franc grapes, alongside other varietals.
Commonly served alongside many steaks, roast lamb, or other red meat dishes, it’s a medium to full bodied dry red wine with high tannins and low to medium levels of acidity that exhibits dark fruit, dark berry, and spice flavours.
