Popular Classics – Merlot
Red fruits, easy tannins, and a soft finish are the characteristics of Merlot wine. But there’s more to Merlot than being smooth. It’s actually a bit of a chameleon, partly because of how Merlot is vinified and mostly because of where it’s grown.
What flavors would you expect from Merlot grown in a cooler climate?
- Jammy ripe fruit flavors of blackberry and raspberry with chocolate.
- Ripe peach and lemon flavors with butter and vanilla
- Fresh and tart raspberry, cherry and blackberry, with mint and violet aromas
- Leather, coffee, baked strawberry, fresh lime, and banana
