Red blends are a combination of two or more grape varietals in a single wine. These blends are known for their complexity, depth of flavor, and the balance of tannins, acidity, and fruit flavors. The specific combination of grapes and the wine-making techniques used can vary greatly depending on the region and the winemaker's style.
Currently, Red Blends outperform Merlot and Pinot Noir when it comes to global sales volume. If it continues its trend in increasing popularity, there is a chance that it might one day unseat the king of wine, Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemakers blend wines because it gives them control to design the wine that they like. Experimentation with blending techniques and grape varietals have led to new ideas when it comes to blends in the industry, so whether you're trying a budget wine like Apothic Red Blend or splurging on an all time favorite like Justin Isosceles Bordeaux, you can relax knowing you're enjoying a red blend.

What is a Red Blend Wine?
Red Blend wines refer to any wine varietal that was created by blending 2 or more wines together. Red blends have become increasingly popular, with some red blends being the most popular wine in the region (see Rioja, Bordeaux).
Is Red Blend Wine Sweet?
There are red blends that range from dry to sweet and everything in between. The taste of a red blend is determined by the types of grapes used and the terroir / winemaking technique of the vineyard. Even red blends that come from the same region can have distinct flavors depending on the blend; for example, a left-bank Bordeaux (based in Cabernet) will be a more full bodied red wine, have more tannins, and overall structure than a smoother & softer right bank Bordeaux (based in Merlot).
