The Taste of Fetzer's Merlot-Earth Friendly

Fetzer’s Merlot is a dry wine of plumbs, blackberry and cherry taste. It is has a deep ruby red appeal and pairs well with cheese, seafood, poultry, meats, and spices.  The wine is an everyday table wine that can be used for the casual occasion. Its price is relatively inexpensive allowing for it to be an affordable alternative.
Wine Facts:

Acidity: .63 grams/100 ml
PH: 3.42
Residual Sugar: .5 grams/100 ml
Alcohol: 13.66% ABV

Make up:
77% Merlot, 7% Syrah, 7% Petite Verdot, 5% Carignane, 3% Petite Syrah, 1% Cabernet

The best part about this wine is that they use sustainable practices. This includes a 10,000 squarefood administrative building built off of recyclable materials, rammed earth construction with solar panels, and maintains the largest wine array of solar power in the industry. This provides another reason to make Fetzer one of your wine choices. 

Wine tasting often relies on the tart and sour taste and how it balances out sweetness and bitterness of the wine. One with too much acidity will prick the sensations while those wines without will have little individual flavor and will be considered soggy. Natural acids that come from the grapes are more superior than those which come from the fermentation process.
