  • Hi all!!!  I want to buy four bottles of red that are not blends.  I want a cab that is a classic cab.  One that really pops in mind when you think of what a classic one is.  I need the same for Merlot, Pinot and Syrah.  I am going to perform my own blind tasting experiment to really nail down the nuances of each and differences between them.Oh ...
