About Merlot

Merlot is a black grape variety that originated in the French region of Bordeaux, where it is often a component of a blend. Its purpose in the blend is to soften the tannins of the wine, adding a silky, velvety texture along with luscious fruit characteristics. In Italy and the New World, Merlot is often seen as a singular expression and is known to be soft, ripe, and elegant in style, with common flavors of plum, mint, and chocolate. When aged in new oak, Merlot has added flavors such as coffee, baking spice, and vanilla.
