Merlot

The term "merlot" is thought to be derived from the French word for "blackbird" because of the grape's dark blue color. Merlot has a full profile of flavors, as the grape's flavor depends on the climate during growth. Cooler climates bring out the taste of strawberries, plums, and ceder; medium climates bring out the tastes of blackberries, black plums, and black plums; warmer climates bring out the tastes of fuitcake and chocolate.
