Description

When the winemaker from Vineco says this is her favorite wine we listened. We made the wine, featured in the video below, and we can attest that this is  really great choice.

Cabernet and Merlot is quite possibly the premier wine blend, pairing two of the most widely-grown grape varieties in the world. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot on their own are the foundation of countless remarkable wines produced in Bordeaux, France. Now staples in other major wine growing countries such as Italy, Chile, and the US, these grapes have also become rooted in such far-flung countries as South Africa, New Zealand, Israel, and on and on. The “Bordeaux Blend” combines the tannic, more acidic structure of Cabernet Sauvignon with the juicier, fruit-forward contribution from Merlot for a result that is greater than the sum of its parts. 

Our Californian Cabernet Merlot blend summons classic flavors of black currants and plums, accentuated by chocolate, spice, toasted notes, and medium oak character. A full-bodied blend with a sturdy alcohol content of 13.5% and decidedly dry finish.

The Cab/Merlot blend includes medium toast American oak chips. Medium toast oak is the most popular toast level used in red wines as it imparts a complex balance of vanillin and spice. American oak is famous for providing classic oak aromas.

The Vinceo Estate Cabernet Merlot pairs well with any evening occasion, and should be one of your go-to bottles for an important dinner or classy date night. Even though this blend can add a touch of refinement when served along a perfectly seared lamb chop, don’t be afraid to pour a tall glass while cozied up for a night of takeout pizza and show bingeing.
