Winemaker Notes

CDR Cotes du Rhone has a robust color and a nose of red fruits. The mouthfeel of this blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Cinsault is generous with tannins.

Critical Acclaim

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

A medium-bodied blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan, this wine offers a supple feel and plenty of red berry and cherry fruit, with just enough spice to give it additional interest. Drink it over the next year or so.

CDR
CDR honors the history of quality winemaking in the Côtes du Rhône appellation. Wines have been produced in the region since pre Roman times and were celebrated by the kings and the Popes in residence at Avignon. The area had been become so renowned for its wines that in 1737 a royal edict mandated all casks of wine shipped from the district be branded with the letters CDR, in effect instituting the first system of authentication of origin in France 200 years before current AOC rules were written. CDR is Côtes du Rhône made in the traditional style from old vine bush trained gobelet pruned vines grown on the right bank of the Rhône River.

California

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.

Other White Blends

View all wine

With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
