Smooth, rounded and “easy drinking” are common descriptions of Merlot wines. In new wine of Merlot dominated aromas of berries (blackberry, black cherry, raspberry), violet and wild plums or plum jam. Some find it in the notes of cocoa and coffee. With age appear aromas of figs, chocolate, spices shades (black pepper), later – the truffle (fungus). There is difference in the flavor of Merlot from regions with different climates. In hot countries bouquet will be more powerful flavored – more spicy and alcohol. Flavor and color in cool climate will be more “green” and alcohol will be less.

The flavors and aromas of Merlot include red fruits, easy tannins and a soft finish. Often in Bordeaux wines where it is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon. As one of the five Bordeaux varieties, it contributes fleshy, ripe dark fruit flavors with soft tannins and an overall supple texture to a wine blend.
