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...

5. Kenefick Ranch Pickett Road Red Estate Grown Napa Valley (2006)

Previously available for $40.00
The blend of this wine caught my eye and along with the fact that Kenefick Ranch sells fruit to some of the top producers in Napa, was the deciding factor for purchase. I'm quite glad I did. The Petit Verdot provides prodigious structure and dark, brooding fruit. Lots of very ripe plum, blueberries and currants wrapped around cedarwood, cinnamon and (thanks to the top class Merlot) wonderful hints of cocoa.
