Wine Wednesday: A smooth Merlot

8 Nov

Greetings, vixens! Tonight I am toasting a glass of fine Merlot in the aftermath of President Obama’s reelection. And what a fine wine (and a fine president, too) it is. Did you know that merlot is the most widely planted red grape in France’s Bordeaux region? It is eclipsed in stature by cabernet sauvignon, the grape with which it is routinely blended. The merlot is softer and has smoother tannins.

This evening I’m sipping a fine 2008 edition of Washington’s Tamarack Cellars Merlot, available at northwestwine.com for 25 bucks. It’s smooth and rich, and oh-so velvety.
