Merlot, is a dark skinned, blue-toned grape that is common for blending in red wines. It is the most popular variety used in Bordeaux wine and is one of the most common grapes grown in the Bordeaux region of France. It is one of the top five most planted wine grape, close to the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, which it is often blended with.

Merlot is an offspring of the Cabernet Franc grape, and has many offspring varieties of its own. It originated in France and is also cultivated in Italy, Australia and some parts of South and North America, particularly California and Washington State. It grows better in cooler environments than Cabernet Sauvignon. Depending on the ripeness, it can taste like chocolate or berries.
