Merlot, which in French means The Little Blackbird, is the second most popular red grape in America.

Tannin: Low to medium
Acidity: Low to medium
Age: Most should be drunk young as only the finest wines need time to develop.

The person I spoke to was very helpful.
Love it but like to tweak it.
I use this kit the Cab kit to make a Cab/Merlot blend and then re-rack at least 4 times before bottling (no filtering necessary). I also did another Merlot kit and added 10 sticks of cinnamon thrown into the initial fermentation and it turned out wonderful.
My personal favorite of all the Kits I've ordered!
