Merlot Red Wine

Perhaps the most versatile and thus widely grown of international red grape varieties, Merlot can be found in everything from the most sublime (and expensive) Pomerols to young, fruity and delicious house pouring wines. It is of course a supreme blending varietal also, playing leading and supporting roles in the cuvées of Bordeaux's Right and Left Banks respectively, as well being integral to a great many Super Tuscans. The flavours often attributed to Merlot range from black cherry, plum and cocoa to blackberry, herbs and graphite with notes of clove, cedar and vanilla when aged in oak, making it an ideal pairing option for all manner of red meat, pizza and tomato-based pasta dishes.
