Discover Merlot Wines
Merlot is a black and blue grape varietal that produces dry red wine with a softer, medium to full body. It is the most commonly planted and popular red wine grape variety in France's Bordeaux region, as well as the second most widely planted and popular red wine grape variety in the United States.
Merlot grapes, which are traditionally vinified to produce a dry red wine, may have a wide range of flavors depending on the environment in which they are cultivated. Merlot will be used in both red wine blends and single varietal wines in several wine areas known for producing the grape.
Merlot, like Cabernet Sauvignon, has a similar taste profile and belongs to the same grape family (a descendant of Cabernet Franc). Merlot differs from Cabernet Sauvignon in that it has a thinner skin and is less astringent owing to fewer and softer tannins. It also has a fruitier, and sometimes less complicated, body.
While the taste of Merlot varies according on the environment in which it is produced, it usually has overtones of juicy blue, black, and red fruit. Undertones of coco, vanilla, and other earth tones frequently accompany these taste sensations.
About the Producer: Blackstone Winery
Blackstone Winery is a California wine brand owned by Constellation Brands, a major international beverage company. The label produces red and white wines from popular international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, but are best known for their popular Merlot variety. Most wines carry the California designation, but some are labeled with the more specific AVA for Monterey County or the AVA for Sonoma County, where the brand is headquartered. The brand was created in 1990 as part of the Coldera Wine Group portfolio. Initially it was just a label, without its own wine cellar and production facilities. By 2001, annual sales had grown to half a million cases, with the result that Coldera and its brands were acquired by Constellation and BRL Hardy. Hardy was later purchased by Constellation, which built a physical winery for Blackstone in Kenwood, Sonoma, but in 2010 the winemaking was transferred to Ravenswood Winery. The latest vintage Blackstone wines were sold under the Blackstone Wine Maker's Select brand.
