James Suckling: 92 Points

The 2019 Machete Proprietary Red is a Petite Sirah-based blend, with additions of Syrah, Grenache, Zinfandel and Viognier. Sourced from Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino, it offers layers of bold blueberry fruit on both the nose and the full-bodied palate. Rich and concentrated, yet supple and long on the finish, with soft, dusty tannins and hints of cocoa, it's a solid effort that manages to nicely conceal its stated 16.1% alcohol.

Wine Advocate: 93 Points

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Proprietary Red Machete needs some swirling to reveal a core of beautiful crushed black plums, boysenberries and black cherry compote plus hints of cracked black pepper, garrigue and camphor. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is laden with muscular, crunchy black fruits and plush tannins, finishing long with lovely freshness.

Red Blend

Red blend wines are a versatile category in which winemakers artfully combine various red grape varieties to produce wines with a diverse and harmonious flavor profile. By blending grapes with different characteristics, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and others, winemakers can create wines that balance fruitiness, acidity, tannins, and other elements. This flexibility allows for a broad spectrum of styles, ranging from easy-drinking and approachable blends to more complex and structured ones. Red blends often showcase the winemaker's skill in achieving a desired flavor and texture, offering wine enthusiasts a delightful exploration of the interplay between different grape varietals. The composition of red blends can vary, not only between different wine regions but also among individual wineries, making them a fascinating category for both winemakers and wine enthusiasts alike.
