After Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot is the most popular varietal in the U.S. An easy drinking red that’s soft, ripe and elegant, merlot is a great starter wine for newer red wine drinkers. French for “The Little Blackbird,” the Merlot grape became known in Bordeaux for its unique ability to add softness and luscious fruit when combined with the region’s favorite grape, Cabernet Sauvignon.
When the grape first arrived in California in the mid-nineteenth century, American winemakers put their own spin on things and began making wines using 100% Merlot. The idea really paid off—American wine drinkers love the softness and low tannin levels of Merlot wine.
