Merlot Red Wine

Merlot is among the most versatile of red grapes and one easily cultivated, which accounts for it being the most widely grown of international varietals. It is vinified for everything from the most prestigious Pomerol to young, fruity, easy-drinking house pouring wines, and is a supreme grape for blending. On Bordeaux's Right and Left Banks, for example, merlot plays a leading and secondary role respectively and is a vital component to most Super Tuscan cuvées. The flavours commonly attributed to the grape range from plum, black cherry and cocoa to blackberry, herbs and graphite, often with notes of clove, cedar and vanilla when oak aged. As such, it makes an ideal pairing with all manner of red meat grilled or roasted, pizza, and tomato-based pasta dishes.
