What does merlot taste like? Is it sweet or dry?
This is an interesting question!! This little blackbird is low in sugar, meaning it comes under the drier side and not the sweet side. Just because it has a dry side does not mean that it is not sweet. It does have notes of ripe fruits like plums and cherries.
The main ingredient for this wine is red-skinned grapes that give it a soft and sensual texture. This wine is loved by everyone and is the second favorite red wine globally. It has an alcohol content of roughly 13-14% by volume.
Merlot has some health benefits, too, like it has high amounts of resveratrol and procyanidin that help lower cholesterol and improve cardiovascular health. If you are confused about who this little blackbird I am talking about, it is the Merlot wine because the word “merlot” in french means little blackbird.
