About: Red Blend Wine Tasting
 
Join us on Thursday, November 21st from 5:30 to 6:30 @MetroWines for  a tasting of Red Blends hosted by Juniper Cooper of Mutual Distribution.
 
Wines will be paired with small bites to emphasize their versatility and bring the flavor to its fullest potential. The structure of Red Blends makes these wines perfect for big gatherings and many different palate preferences.
 
A Red Blend is the label name for a red wine that is made of more than one varietal ranging from the traditional Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc to more usual combinations. 
 
Like all wines, Red Blends vary in color in the glass, aroma, flavor, structure and agreeability in the bottle. The purpose of the Red Blend is to complement the attributes of each varietal. 
 
"A winemaker, for example, would likely add the thick skinned Cabernet Sauvignon to provide tannins offering structure and a foundation for aging," says Gina Trippi, co-owner of MetroWines. "Blends have become popular with customers because one varietal complements the other making the combination better than any individual varietal."
 
$20 for the presentation and tasting. To reserve your seat, call (828) 575-9525 or online here: https://metrowinesasheville.com/store/product/red-blend-tasting/
