Kathie Lee Gifford teams with Monterey County's Scheid Vineyards for this wine, which features 42% Merlot, 25% Petite Sirah, 12% Syrah and 10% Petit Verdot. There’s a mix of iron, coffee and crushed, dried violet on the Old World-leaning nose. The herbal elegance continues on the palate, with dried oregano seasoning the dark black and blue fruit elements."

I tend to prefer white wines and find myself first reaching for Gifft Chardonnay. But I really wanted to work with the Scheid family to craft an easy-drinking red, one that pairs well with a wide variety of food but is also pleasing to drink all on its own. Our 2011 Gifft Red Blend was created to do just that. Coming up with the final blend, comprised of 10 different varietals, was like a wonderful experiment, with plenty of mixing, discussion, adjustments and lots and lots of tasting. The result is an oh-so-smooth and oh- so-flavorful red blend, with a core of red fruit that carries through from beginning to end. While it certainly falls in the category of "easy- drinking red", the complexity, balance and lushness make it a wine for casual drinkers and serious wine-lovers alike.

Our 2011 vintage of Gifft Red Blend is comprised of 10 different varietals, blended to showcase the fully-integrated bright fruit character of each component. With aromas of blackberry and ripe plum and loads of black fruit on the palate, it exhibits a smooth, silky mouthfeel on a mediumbodied, soft round frame with a touch of vanilla and sweet oak.

Our 2011 Red Blend is 100% estate grown and hails from the Scheid family's vineyards in Monterey County. The Monterey growing region is known for having the longest growing season in California due to the maritime influence of the Monterey Bay. The winds that sweep through the vineyards each day bring a natural cooling effect, allowing an extra two to four weeks of what winemakers call "hang time". Increased hang time leads to more intense flavor development and an enhanced richness of the fruit.

Blend: 42% Merlot, 25% Petite Syrah, 12% Syrah, 10% Petite Verdot, 4% Other Reds (Tempranillo, Touriga Nacionale, Tinto Cao, Tannat), 4% Other Whites (Muscat Canelli, Riesling)
