Top 10 Producers of Bordeaux Blend Wines

Our favorites for #GTiBordeauxBlends

8. Vergelegen Red

This may be the most highly acclaimed red wine producer in all of South Africa. With two wines vying for attention, the elusive V and the somewhat easier to track down Red, I had to sneak Vergelegen in. My list is looking a little South African heavy, but I guess the style, smoky and a bit green, really appeals to my palate!

Vergelegen Red is a rich, fairly powerful wine, not overtly fruity yet not lacking in blackberry and black currant flavors. It is a wine graced with mineral, herbal and of course smoky nuances, and one I never tire of drinking.

    Any list that leaves off Ray Krause from Westbrrok Wine Farm is incomplete. His Fait Accompli is one of California's crown jewels. You need to find that and be as stunned as I have been - with each new release.

    Yes, I saw what you did here Gregory - no complaints from me. I'd say well done!

    Some price points would have been nice. I love the Ramey Claret. It is my "go to" wine.
