Dark blue-colored variety of wine-making grape
Merlot is a dark blue–colored wine grape variety that can be used to produce both blending and varietal wines. Merlot is thought to be a diminutive of merle, the French word for a blackbird, which is most likely a reference to the grape’s color. Merlot is a common grape for blending with the sterner, later-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon, which appears to be higher in tannin, due to its softness and “fleshiness” combined with its earlier ripening.Link to here... | Derived from 'Merlot' on Wikipedia
Grapevine that yields black grapes used for wine
Cabernet Franc is a popular black grape variety grown all over the world. It’s mostly grown for blending with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in the Bordeaux style, but it can also be vinified on its own, as in Chinon in the Loire. It is also made into ice wine in Canada and the United States, in addition to being used in blends and grown as a varietal.Link to here... | Derived from 'Cabernet Franc' on Wikipedia
