Two great Red Blends from the Old World where blending is a way of life!
2012 Villa Lanata Baccanera, 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Barbera, from the Piedmont hills in Northern Italy, one of the greatest wine regions in the world! The native Italian grape Barbera gives the wine the signature earthiness of Italian wines and the Cabernet gives the wine the New World ripeness and deep blackberry and blueberry flavors everyone is looking for in a blend these days!
2013 Paxis Red from Portugal. A blend of several indigenous grapes including the Noble Grape, Touriga Nacional which is the most important grape in the blend for Port wine. 90 points from the Wine Enthusiast and it made their Top 100 Best Buys list for 2016. This blend will stun you with its long lasting, deep and complex flavors including red and black fruits, dried figs and tobacco!
