Description

The precise flavors that Merlot imparts to a wine are not easily defined. Plum and black cherry are among the most common fruit descriptors used, though Merlot is often used for producing wines of a particular texture, rather than a particular taste.

 

Smooth, rounded and "easy drinking" are common descriptions of Merlot wines. The main reason for this is that Merlot grapes are relatively large in relation to their pips and the thickness of the skins, in which tannins are found. For this reason, the variety is often used to soften wines made from more tannic varieties. That said, in regions such as Pomerol and Saint-Émilion the grape can achieve great power, depth and structure.

 

The variety is often found in rosé wines, either alone or in blends, where its roundness is also prized. Though such wines may well have a fair amount of residual sugar, Merlot dessert wines are rare. The same applies to sparkling wines featuring the variety. Merlot grape juice is quite widely found, however.
