Merlot

Merlot is a contented, approachable lady, who has a fuller figure and wears it well. An established woman-of-the-world, she can be seen relaxing in California, Chile and elsewhere where she reveals her fruity side. She has a long-term, on-off partner, Cabernet Sauvignon, who can be a little uptight on his own, but they have a special bond and Merlot knows how to handle him. Cabernet often joins Merlot on her travels, but their relationship seems to blossom particularly well in their homeland, Bordeaux, where Cabernet can wear his red corduroys in comfort and they can catch up with their blend-friends, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Carménère.
