The Blend

Mercury Rising, Cinnabar’s most popular wine, is a Bordeaux-style red Cuvée. The varietal blend is fine-tuned with each vintage to ensure the individual components contribute to the synergy of the aroma, flavor, structure, and mouthfeel.

The Innovation

Mercury Rising was created long before red wine blends became popular. Back when Cinnabar released its first vintages in the mid-1990s, many retailers did not know where to place the wine on their shelves, as the Meritage or Red Wine Blend categories had not yet been created. Twenty years later, many retailers now feature a whole section dedicated to red wine blends—a testament to Cinnabar’s visionary winemaking!
