Winemaker Notes

Aromas reminiscent of apricot, mango, passion fruit and flint. Lively and juicy with a vibrant, well balanced acidity resulting in a complex and lasting finish.

Pair with terrine of venison and goose liver with sauce Cumberland and butter brioche. Marinated tranche of salmon with Asian style rice noodle salad and wasabi sabayon.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 89
Wine Spectator

Ripe and open-knit, hanging its peach, orange and slate flavors like a loose garment over the solid structure. It's juicy and moderately long. Drink now through 2018.

RP 88
The Wine Advocate

Apple, mint, and cherry in the nose of Molitor's 2007 Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Spatlese feinherb lead to a palate that pits ripe cherry and apple fruit against a slightly bitter herbs and wet stone. This lacks the uncanny delicacy of the corresponding Klosterberg, but finishes with luscious persistence and well-integrated - indeed, practically virtually undetectable - sweetness.

Bordeaux Blends

View all wine

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

In the Glass

Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

Perfect Pairings

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secret

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
