Bottles labeled as a blend refer to wines made from blending two or more varieties of grapes together. Winemakers in Missouri frequently use Norton, Chambourcin, St. Vincent, Cabernet Franc and even Concord. The different grapes are often processed and fermented separately then blended together at later stages. Blending grapes can add complexity and balance while enhancing aromas, finish and mouthfeel.
Ideal Serving Temperature:

The best pairing will likely depend of the particular style of the wine. A heavier red blend may pair well with steak or lamb. Consider pairing a medium-bodied red blend with pizza or pasta.
