Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is one of the best wine blends in the world. The blend, which consists of both cabernet sauvignon and merlot, is an excellent combination where one compliments the other, bringing out the best in each element. At Liquor Mart, we take the time out to look for the best blends in the market so as to allow you to experiment in order to determine which blends you like the most. Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is an ideal wine for people that love complex but simple wines. The Merlot in the blend is soft and brings fruity aromas of cherry, plum, and raspberry while the Cabernet Sauvignon is more stern offering structure and a lingering distinctive taste. Together, the end result is a fruity and elegant partnership that is Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot.
Blended wines are quickly taking over the minds and hearts of wine enthusiasts. Blending, which is typically accomplished right before bottling occurs, allows the creation of something truly spectacular from delicious elements that are nurtured carefully and right from the start of the production process.
The best ways to preserve cabernet merlot
Cab Merlot Cabernet, like any other variety of wine, should be preserved properly to ensure its freshness. If you have a few glasses left in your open bottle:
Re-cork the Merlot blend
The best way to preserve your Merlot wine is to replace the cork tightly and correctly. Ensure to replace the stained side of the cork as the clean side may be impure, which can taint the final one or two glasses left.
Put the cabernet merlot in the fridge
Do not be tempted to leave your leftover cabernet sauvignon merlot on the table or counter after you have replaced the cork correctly. Instead, place it in the fridge; the cool temperature will slow down the breaking down process that often occurs with exposed wine.
Finish the cabernet sauvignon merlot
If you buy a 750 ml bottle of wine, which means that you can enjoy roughly 5 glasses of merlot wine. If you are eating a decent sized meal, consider sharing the Merlot blend with a date or friend so that you do not have to preserve it at all.
