With a medium-full body, moderate acidity, and noticeable but not overwhelming tannins, Merlot is a dry wine. The flavours will differ significantly based on the wine areas where the grapes were produced and the winemaking technique used. Merlot's dark fruit flavours include black cherries, blackberry, plum, and raspberry, with herbaceous overtones and nuances of vanilla and mocha. Remember that Merlot's robust fruit characteristics do not equate to sweetness, which is something to keep in mind when sipping the wine.
