The WH tasting room staff often refers to the Five Gen Blend as our "baby BDX" in reference to our top-end bottling of Reserve BDX. Though the Five Gen is also a Bordeaux-style blend, it tends to have a more fruit-driven and approachable flavor profile. Five Gen is our ready-to-drink now version of BDX that typically doesn't require as much cellaring to enjoy it's true potential.
