Top 5 Cabernet/Merlot at the LCBO
Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
Western Cape, South Africa
This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. A Cabernet/Merlot is a medium bodied red wine. Merlot-based wines usually have medium body with hints of berry, plum, and currant. Its softness and "fleshiness", combined with its earlier ripening, makes Merlot a popular grape for blending with the sterner, later-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon, which tends to be higher in tannin.
