About Merlot

Similar to Cabernet Sauvignon but with less tannin and fruit. Delivers earlier maturing wines. Often blended with Cabernet; on its own may soften with age, though fruit flavors may fade.

    We are not usually merlot drinkers and much prefer a nice cab. We were pleasantly surprised. Superb flavor. Would definitely buy this again.
