Wines - why not more blends? There are so many single grape wines in America that are very flawed, and blending them could easily fix them. You might have a Zin that's too dry and peppery, a cab that's too big and tannic with no other notes - just pour em together and you have a much better wine!! It seems there's a single-grape snobbery in America that definitely doesn't exist in France (pretty much all their top wines are blends). Some of the ideal blends might take wines from different wineries which creates some logistical difficulty, but there are plenty of big producers that could easily make superior wines.
