Extremely floral and beautiful with crushed-raspberry and rose-petal aromas. Medium body, super-integrated tannins and a fine texture. It's tight and focused. Drinkable now but will be better in two or three years.

Six Wineries Where You Don’t Just Taste the Wine, You Actually Make It

Much of the artistry of being a winemaker is knowing what grapes to blend, and how much. The reason you like most of the wines that you do often comes down to those proportions. (Grapes can, of course, be mixed into wine blends right after the crush, but most blending happens months after harvest.) And since no one knows better what you like than you, why leave this all-important process to the experts? Take matters into your own hands and head to one of these six wineries, where you can make your own blend and, in most cases, walk away with a bottle—or a case. (All are by appointment only.) 

The Blend Experience, $65
In Napa, Paraduxx makes highly acclaimed, complex blends that include cabernet sauvignon and zinfandel on the red end and viognier and chradonnay on the white end. Paraduxx’s hour-and-a-half blending sessions are among the most affordable—in part because you’re not taking home any wine. But that won’t stop you from tasting: You’ll be sipping along the way. You’ll be guided through the process of mixing and blending while you learn the basics of what makes a good blend, the background of the grapes, and history associated with different blends and varietals. And if you're not too tipsy by the end of class—hopefully you've been spitting—you can savor the final blend.

Value of blending displayed in many wine styles

Most wines are blends of multiple grapes from various vineyards, even those varietally labeled. And more wineries are featuring wines specifically as blends.

The consumer survey company Nielsen has identified a trend toward more red wine blends, calling them "the craft beer of the wine category."

For many, the Bordeaux formula of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot is the template. For others, Italy's "Super Tuscans" are the benchmark, though usually substituting zinfandel for sangiovese. Finally, some mix and match miscellaneous grapes to achieve a desired style.

While the Cuvée series uses Bordeaux as its reference, Duckhorn Winery's Paraduxx project emulates Super Tuscans.

- 2013 Napa Valley ($48) - mostly cabernet sauvignon, with merlot, zinfandel and petit verdot - has strong tobacco, mint notes and solid tannins.

- 2012 Atlas Peak ($80) - 65 percent cabernet and 35 percent zinfandel - features firm structure, bright berry fruit and a touch of spice.

- 2012 Rector Creek Vineyard ($80) - 70 percent zinfandel and 30 percent cabernet - is lively and focused.

- 2012 X2 ($95) - 90 percent cabernet and 10 percent zinfandel - is intense and complex.
