While dining in a fabulous B&B last month in a small town just south of Macon, GA. I sampled 2 fine Merlots- a Shafer & a Sterling. We were dining with a large party & the waiter suggested we try a Cab that was bodied similar to that of a Merlot. (I do not remember the name - I was not that impressed with the flavor.)Someone else commented that they could tell it was a CAB by the way the wine "tiered" - "teared" sp?
I did not wish to show my ignorance & simply agreed with a nod & sipped the new vino silently. PLEASE HELP- WHAT was he describing - how can you immediately tell a Merlot from a Cabernet- simply by looking?
I would think flavor & smell would HAVE to factor in as well?!
Thanks- KATSY

Hi Katsy, and welcome to the Wine Board. Our resident expert accidentally answered your question below. He is right on as mostly usual.

IK, below? Below what? There ain't nothing below your post other than this one asking the question!

Well it was above, IK, by the time I logged onto the system...............

But I found it anyway. THANKS.

What is below becomes above when someone after makes it so.

I've been told to go below from above many of the times I've been outside but not cold. I really think about thinking above the bottom most of the werewithall that has been outlined. WW
