Bordeaux Blends

True classics in every sense of the word, these red wine blends tend to be based on cabernet sauvignon and merlot with varying contributions from a few other traditional varieties. Although you should expect attributes like body and aroma intensity to vary across such a broad category, the best Bordeaux blends should taste of black and red fruits, certainly black currants and cherries, and will flash some tannic structure in the mouth. These generally pair well with meaty fare.
