Merlot features many of the flavor profiles typical of other red wines but offers a softer finish. As a result of this mellower feel, it pairs nicely with many food pairing options. Like Cabernet Sauvignon, it pairs well with grilled, braised or charred meats but can also be paired with something lighter like poultry, pork or salmon. Pour yourself a glass with roasted vegetables, strong cheeses and even desserts. Prepare something like bacon wrapped scallops to complement the diverse flavors of the Merlot, as if you needed another excuse to eat bacon. With this many opportunities to eat bacon and steak, you'll need at least a case or two of your favorite Merlot.
