Merlot Grape


 

The Merlot grape is the most widely planted black grape variety of Bordeaux and is usually blended with Cabernet Sauvignon.  Merlot is lower in tannins and acidity, yet can bring a smoothness and richness to wines that would otherwise be somewhat harsh.  Merlots that are unblended are usually soft and easy-drinking wines with flavors of plums and fruitcake
