"Because of the way the leaf grows, it's easiest to blend to a 43 or 44 ring gauge," said Quesada. "That way, you can go up or down. Going up is a lot easier, as you have more room in the gauge. I like to say we, as blenders, blend in solids, as opposed to winemakers who blend in liquids. Adjust a tiny quarter of an inch there in the leaf, adding an inch here, that is far easier than subtracting."
