Chez Ray blends

One of the joys of winemaking is the opportunity to blend. Often, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts when it comes to wine blends. Not always. But often.

Here are a few promising new Chez Ray blends, ready to drink:

Zinfandel "vertical": 2005 Russian River Valley Sonoma Zinfandel plus 2006 Russian River Valley Sonoma Zinfandel. This one was also done with a percentage of 2006 Lodi Zin added.

Merlot/Syrah: 2005 Carneros Sonoma Merlot plus 2006 Alexander Valley Sonoma Syrah plus 1/2 2006 Carneros Sonoma Merlot - this is best with an addition of zinfandel, Sonoma plus Lodi in unspecified levels.
