As opposed to Napa Valley Red Table Wine which generally starts in the $50-$100 range.
Napa Table Wines are blends, typically similar to a Bordeaux.
They are sometimes called Meritage. However, the title Meritage has been trademarked and costs something like $1.00
per bottle to the Meritage Association for which you get some marketing or whatever.
So for those wineries that don't want to pay the money, but want to make a Bordeaux style blend, you get names like
Claret, Trinity, and Red Table Wine, which like I said, can be over $100 a bottle and extremely goood.
