It is Merlot Month and I am here for it! This grape does not get enough credit. Did you know Merlot is often blended with higher tannin varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon to soften the blends? It is a very versatile grape that can be light and fruity or a riper Merlot tends to be more full-bodied with notes of blackberry and black plum.
This @materra reserve did not disappoint! Beautiful garnet color with silky tannins and notes of cherries, anise and black currants. I may selfishly finish this bottle by myself.😏 #merlotmonth #moremerlot #napavalley
