Red Wine Blends

Jan 8th, 2017 by admin | 0

Red wine blends, particularly those by domestic producers, are growing in popularity. Red blends can be a mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Syrah, Merlot or any combination of red wines.

Red wine blends are typically 40 to 50-percent of the main grape with smaller portions of the others. Blends give the wine a nice balance, a better finish and a more complex flavor. Here are four red wine blends, two that are full-bodied and two with a gentler harmony of fruit.

Ménage à Trois Midnight Dark Red Blend combines Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, and Petit Verdot to create a luxurious and rich intermingling. These four grapes present a velvety texture and a sumptuous concentration of fruit.

Fizz 56 Sparkling Red Brachetto Review

Have a special occasion coming up? Want something out-of-the-ordinary that’s delicious and irresistible? You may want to try Fizz 56 Sparkling Red Brachetto. It is far from ordinary.

Fizz 56 Sparkling Red Brachetto has a bright red ruby tone, and a very festival look and feel. Fizz 56 sparking red is highly aromatic with an alluring, light taste, and just a hint of soft berry notes in a tantalizing blend of raspberry, strawberry and cherry flavors.

Fizz56 is a sweet Italian red wine made from Brachetto grapes. The Brachetto grape is a naturally effervescent red grape that is native to Italy, and is rarely grown in other parts of the world.

It’s a true Italian wine, and if wine can be glamorous and exciting, Fizz 56 is certainly in line for the honor. It’s charmingly sweet and bubbly, and can be perfectly paired with a romantic evening for two, or a dessert complimentary to any occasion.

Be prepared to be the center of attraction when you pop this cork.
