2018 Bordeaux Rouge (Mendis, Chateau de)

Ch. de Mendis, Bordeaux Rouge, Bordeaux, France 2018

{sustainable} 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon


Mendis is the sort of red Bordeaux we could drink everyday with a home cooked meal or after dinner with a movie. This is affordable, ready to drink Bordeaux. Bordeaux is the home to Cabernet and Merlot grapes. Mendis is a delicious blend on a foundation of Merlot then layered with Cab Sauv. The nose shows white pepper and sweet spices leading to Mendis' deep color revealing the blackberry fruit we love from Merlot with a shot of Cab to give it a backbone and anchor the fruit.

Serving Suggestion: Juicy 80% ground beef, hand patted into thick burgers; or a NY strip steak au poivre.
