Chase away the blues as you buy Merlot red wine, this glass of deliciousness is made of a dark blue grape variant, grown in France. It shares its origins with Bordeaux red wines, but with a sweeter, lighter mouthfeel and balanced flavor profile. A good glass of Merlot is soft to the taste and great even for the first-time wine drinker. When trying to find something for a larger gathering of people or a hangout at home with your friends, the Merlot is a safe bet.

The dark blue color is what got the Merlot wine and its grape the name- with it finding its derivation from the word that means ‘blackbird/raven’ in French.
