The Merlot grape is a dark blue grape with thin skins and is principally used for blending in the United States. It has also become a really nice wine to enjoy on its own due to its naturally soft texture and rich flavor. Merlot is usually on the dry side and pairs well with steak, beef dishes, and pasta with red sauces.
