PairingwithMERLOT

The rich flavor of this famous grape satisfies the palette
F

For a long time, merlot grapes were known for their ability to blend well with cabernet sauvignon, but the grape has also carved out its own niche as a popular single variety. Merlot grapes have a redder hue than cabernet sauvignon grapes and thinner skin; the grapes also have fewer tannins, which can make the wines soft and smooth.

Taste: Merlots can be sleek, elegant and rich in plum and berry fruitiness. The wines are medium-bodied with moderate acidity and soft tannins. Long-lasting flavors make them good all-purpose wines.

Perfect Food Matches: The more complex versions pair well with moderately rich meats, such as grilled steak or lamb chops, and roast lamb or duck and the fruitier styled wines are great with tomato-sauced pasta, burgers, and barbequed chicken.
