We’re kicking off #GTiBordeaux Blends with a look at some Meritage style wines. I call these wines Meritage style because not every wine I'm going to taste is technically a Meritage wine.
Meritage wines are branded wines that are based on Bordeaux varietals, and while many of the wines I'm tasting could be heritage wine, not everyone goes through that branding process. Some folks add a bit of this (Syrah) and that (Sangiovese) to their wine. Where else am I supposed to taste wines like that? So onto some fine wines from Oregon, California and the heart of Cabernet country: Napa Valley.
