The art of blending is the cornerstone of Margo’s winemaking philosophy. To her, one of the greatest accomplishments is to create a wine style or signature blend capturing the uniqueness of that particular growing year.Try her 2005 Chateau St Jean Cuvee 8555, Red Blend, Sonoma. Engaging blend of 40% Malbec, 19% Cabernet Franc, 18% Petit Verdot, 13% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 3% Syrah. It showcases a deep ruby/purple hue, aromas of red and black fruits, smoke, pepper, and spice, in a softer style.
