Wines Less Traveled: Bordeaux Blends

My next "less traveled" list.  I feel obliged to admit Bordeaux Blends (or Meritage or Claret or whatever you want to call them) are my personal favorite type of wine.  Once again this list will contain wines many have never heard of  and unfortunately may not be readily available.  However, as always I promise each wine will go above and beyond its price point and be a great expression of its region.  I feel like a wine hipster...oh dear...

4. Adams Bench Reckoning (2007)

« Prev Next » 4 of 10
Average price: $29.95 from 1 store
This wine is dense with some big chewy tannins and full body. Lots of black plums on the nose with hints of dried herbs and graphite. The palette delivers with ripe black fruits, dark chocolate, espresso, and vanilla. This wine is, beyond anything else, a steal. A $50+ wine in a $30 bottle. Once again it seems Washington over delivers on quality.
