2014 Two Guns

When blending, it's kind of gun slinging. You pull this and that, hoping to nail it. It takes time - and a lot of barrel tasting - but you want to dial back the dominant grape in any blend for all grapes to bring their punch to the blending party. We settled on loading back the Cabernet Sauvignon to 34% and pumped up the Merlot to 66%. That fit in our holster, and our Bordeaux concoction "Two Guns" kept blasting away.
