The Yarden Merlot displays ripe red and black fruit characters, along with aromatic notes of fresh herbs, tangerine, cedar, earth and baking spice. Full bodied, this Merlot is wonderfully flavorful and elegantly drinkable.
Cabernet Sauvignon’s perfect match! A somewhat unappreciated superstar black grape, Merlot is excellent as a blending partner, as well as a stand-alone varietal. Offering luscious, often plum, smokey or chocolatey flavors, and a full body, Merlot can achieve great richness. This luxuriousness is what allows Merlot and Cabernet to blend so well. You can often find Merlot in a Bordeaux blend, but with the right hands, it can be shaped into a really exciting varietal.
