The next step comes when your interest starts expanding and you start tasting and buying wines from the same producer.
If someone is not an expert wine lover, the difference between cabernet sauvignon and merlot is not known to many. And since people would like to know the difference between this two before buying, let us highlight the difference;
Merlot is a soft acidity juicy wine with flavours of chocolate and Cherry. It is aged in oak barrels and it has a deep aroma. It is very delicious and tastes great at a much younger age. It’s cheaper and has a smooth finish. Merlot has a lighter tannin and its very sweet. This makes it pair well with most Italian foods, roasted chicken and cheese. It has low tannin and its very affordable. It originated from the right side of river Gironde. It grows well in limestone and clay soil that are of too much cooler temperature. Its grapes ripen slower than cabernet.
Cabernet Sauvignon on the other hand is the most popular and it’s sold more than merlot. It is older and more aggressive wine. It has a drying sensation and it tastes better with age. It’s quite dark with strong tannins and slight refreshing acid that tends to linger on the tongue. It has a longer finish. Cabernet is a complex wine that is very rich and pairs well with no food or heavier meals like beef. You should avoid oily foods like Fish since oil doesn’t tame the tannin adequately. It’s because of its characteristics that makes it the best wine gift. It originated from the left side of river Gironde and it grows well in gravely soil that is well drained. Its grapes ripen faster than merlot.
Cabernet sauvignon and Merlot may have different tastes and characteristics but the alcohol content in both wines is quite similar (around 13-14%).Both wines are the most popular red wines in the world.
