PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Bordeaux lovers know that there is nothing quite like cabernet-merlot blends from the great region of Haut-Médoc. The soil here is mainly composed of thick gravel layers that have been swept downriver over time and now sit on a base of heavy clay. The warm, well-drained gravel terraces provide ideal growing conditions for the late-ripening cabernet sauvignon grapes. Further inland, the soils turn to deep deposits of clay; merlot thrives here. In recent decades it has largely usurped cabernet sauvignon in these parts of the Médoc. Patches of limestone and sandier soils add diversity to the more widely spread gravels, which otherwise dominate the terroir (wine-searcher).


Cabernet sauvignon and merlot fit together like puzzle pieces; cabernet's firm tannins, moderate alcohol levels, black fruits, and high acidity beautifully complement merlot's higher alcohol, plump, juicy red fruits, velvety texture, and soft tannins. Throw in the terroir of Haut-Médoc and you get a wine that is compelling, layered, and complex. Sounds expensive, but today it isn't!

The Croix de Laborde is everything you want and more in a red wine except for the price - it's versatile, packed with flavor, and it is only $14 per bottle. Crafted from 60% merlot and 40% cabernet sauvignon, it is medium-to-full-bodied and loaded with cassis, black cherry, and blackberry characters layered with hints of cedar, vanilla, cocoa, and woodsmoke. Silky-smooth on the mid-palate, it finishes long and with balancing acidity.
