The primary grape varieties used in producing Bordeaux-style red wine are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with supporting roles played by Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Calcareous, in Paso Robles, describes their Bordeaux-style blend as “showing a very opaque dark style in the glass. The nose is filled with earthy dust and dark fruit.  The Malbec lends a beautiful deep violet color and upfront fruit.  The heavier Cab Sauv and Petit Verdot fill the mid palate with density and red fruit offering a lingering finish.”
