Happy hump day! For this week's #WineDownWednesday I chose merlot. Although it's oftentimes overlooked and disregarded, merlot is quite tasty. Merlot is a dry, red wine that can be paired with various recipes and dishes.
With flavors of black cherries, berries, and vanilla, Merlot goes great with beef and tomato dishes. So foods like meatloaf, spaghetti, and beef wellington are perfect with a glass of merlot.
Being as there're so many different red wines to choose from, merlot always seems to get lost in the sauce. So the next time you're in the grocery store looking for a nice bottle of wine, try some merlot.
