    *7R* 2018 Markham Vineyards "The Altruist" Red Blend (Napa, CA)

    Primarily made from estate-grown fruit, this Bordeaux-style blend centers around Merlot's lush, smooth qualities, with Cabernet Sauvignon adding structure and depth. Cabernet Franc introduces a hint of floral notes, and the blend is completed by the inclusion of Malbec and Petit Verdot, which contribute to a rich boysenberry flavor and vibrant color.

    About The Varietal

    Bordeaux Blend

    A red Bordeaux blend primarily consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, supplemented by smaller amounts of Malbec and Petit Verdot, with Carménère occasionally included. While the term naturally applies to all red wines originating from Bordeaux, it is also suitable for wines produced beyond the region, such as those from California, Washington, Argentina, and other locations.
