Merlot - origin of the grape variety
Merlot red wine is one of the most popular grape varieties in the world. It is best known for its soft taste and velvety finish. A Merlot places structure above fruit and aromas. When drinking one of these wines, you can taste quite a fruity flavor and the finish feels refreshing. Red wines made from Merlot grapes produce wines that smell and taste like plums. They can also taste grassy depending on how ripe they are. The younger the wine, the easier it is for the connoisseur to detect the "green" aromas.
