Merlot

(Mare-lo) Easy to drink. The softness of Merlot has made it an “introducing” wine for new red-wine drinkers.

Food pairings: any will do.

Districts: a key player in the Bordeaux blend, merlot is now also grown in Italy, Romania, California, Washington State, Chile, Australia, etc.

Typical taste in varietal wine: the Merlot type of wine is tannic (rough) but less so than Cabernet Sauvignon. A middle palate gap is common. Typical scents include blackcherry, plums and herbal flavors.
