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: Simi Winery
Simi Winery is a California based producer located in Sonoma County and is one of California's oldest permanent wineries. It was founded in 1876 by brothers Giuseppe and Pietro Simi and is known for its varietal wines Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Its long history means that Symi has influenced the wine industry landscape in California and Sonoma County. In 1904, Giuseppe's daughter Isabel took over the direction of the winery. She managed to keep the winery under Prohibition, the law that caused the collapse of much of the (legal) wine industry in the United States. Symi continued to work, selling wine for sacred and medicinal purposes, as well as selling part of the property. Isabelle held about 500,000 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel produced during Prohibition and released them when the so-called Volstead Act (which provided for a statutory ban) was repealed - a move that gave Simi a big advantage in California in the mid-1990s. 1930. years. and helped secure their future.

She was followed in 1979 by the renowned Zelma Long winery, the second woman to graduate from the University of California at Davis in the same area. Simi was bought by Moet Hennessy and started buying back land sold during Prohibition. Today, Simi is owned by beverage conglomerate Constellation Brands, which also owns renowned wineries such as Robert Mondavi Winery in California and Kim Crawford Winery in New Zealand.
