More about Half Bottles of Merlot

Merlot’s popularity has risen with the demand for wines that are soft and easy to drink when young.  Merlot grapes ripen more easily than Cabernet and so achieve phenolic, or full, ripeness quicker thus producing a softer, more generous, plumy wine. Merlot is a key constituent of Bordeaux blends but achieved its fame in California where the film Sideways clearly showed how common it has become. Half bottles of Merlot are appealing immediately they are opened.
