Wine Guide > Merlot


12793 visitors
Merlot is a red wine grape that is used as both a blending grape and for varietal wines. Merlot-based wines usually have medium body with hints of berry, plum, and currant. Its softness and fleshiness, combined with its earlier ripening, makes Merlot an ideal grape to blend with the sterner, later-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon. This flexibility has helped to make it one of the most popular red wine varietals in the United States and Chile.
More information on Merlot
Food Pairing: Pairs well with Mexican foods and Indian coconut curries, as well as duck, rabbit and seafood. Try served with a barbecue picnic of hot dogs or hamburgers. Also great with Spaghetti Bolognese.

2005 Yosemite View Merlot
Sierra Foothills

When bottled, our Merlot was awkward and tough, with somewhat hard tannins. It has since lost that rustic character and is now full-flavored with intriguing high-tone berry and ced ...morear aromas. On the palate it shows classic earthy tones, with a touch of mint and herb. Still, the wine is not for the faint-of-heart, and is best enjoyed with a meal of hearty foods.

Black cherry and blueberry dominate the aromas of this fruit-forward style Merlot. There are nice layers of rose petal, red apple, vanilla and licorice. The palate reflects the fla ...morevors with its fruit-forward style nuanced by a complex spice. The wine is very full on the palate with nice balanced tannins and good body. There is a well balanced acidity that lets the fruit character linger on the palate for quite some time.

2003 Merlot
Feingold Vineyards

This is not a subdued wine. It has the classic earmarkings of its French counterpart. Full in structure from start to finish with a dark cherry nose, slight hints of cedar and bala ...morenced tannins.

This is a classic representation of what merlot is should be. If Miles had tasted this merlot, he would have changed his statement in the movie "Sideways" to reflect the great character of this Bordeaux varietal.

2005 was a great vintage, slightly cooler than 2004. The Maclise Merlot from this vintage is very deeply colored, silky, streamlined and focused. A ripe dry cherry nose, finely tex ...moretured mid palate and smooth acid finish characterize this wine.

This wine will match well with grilled foods, marinated and grilled lamb, smoked eggplant or simply enjoyed with a nice triple cream brie and crusty sourdough bread.

2005 Merlot
Paso Robles

Another perennial favorite, Wild Horse Merlot was popular before the Merlot craze even began. Paso Robles provides us with exceptional fruit that is typically more intense and stru ...morectured than its cousin, Cabernet Sauvignon. The result is a wine that provides rich ripe fruit flavors balanced by bright acidity. The soft, rich tannins, acidity and long finish make this wine an ageworthy contender.
