The Bordeaux Blend is one of the most popular wine styles in the world. The Bordeaux Blend traditionally is a style of wine that was produced in the Bordeaux region of France but today you may see Bordeaux-inspired blends popping up in California, Washington state, and other regions in the world.
The Bordeaux Blend is made from a blend of permitted grapes - the permitted grapes are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Carmenere.
In the glass, you'll typically experience a wine higher in tannins with the Cabernet-based Bordeaux Blends while a Merlot-based Bordeaux will drink as a softer red wine. A Bordeaux Red Blend typically has aromas and taste of plum, cedar, currant, and red fruit flavors.
