Its tannins are sweet and fruity. The wines are aromatic and meaty, with a deep ruby colour and medium alcohol content. Mild, fine palate. Merlot is used together with varieties such as Garnacha to make young wines and with varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Bobal and Tempranillo for aged wines. It is used above all to add softness, elegance and balance to wines.
