“Wine Review: Little Black Dress Merlot”

Welcome to Wine Wednesday! Here you will find new wines at an affordable price. See all of our Wine Wednesday features here. You can also view our Cocktail Corner posts here.

Just like a little black dress, a bottle of Merlot is a “go to”  for any occasion. It is a wine that is simple, but by adding accessories- in this case foods to compliment, it can easily be dressed up and ready to impress.

Little Black Dress Merlot is very smooth and easy on the palate, making it an excellent wine for any occasion. “This wine is rich with aromas of ripe black cherry, cranberry, and warm herb, complemented by hints of vanilla and toasted oak. This medium-bodied Merlot can seduce even the most experienced of palates with its nice lingering finish.”

Aromas of ripe black cherry, red licorice,  plum, and sweet toasty oak with hints of perfume, cranberry and warm herb. Smooth and rich mouth-feel with hints of red cherry, berry, vanilla, and sweet oak.  A nice lingering finish.

I was really excited to open this bottle of Merlot seeing as it it one of Little Black Dress’ most popular wines. I wish I would have known about Emily’s Tender Juicy Ribs before opening the bottle because it would have went perfect with this wine! Pair it with any hearty meats to accentuate the flavors that make up this medium-bodied Merlot.


Pick up a bottle for less than $12 and help in their cause to give back to those less fortunate.  Little Black Dress Wines, the official wine of awards season, continues its tradition of auctioning off some of the most coveted little black dresses of the red carpet with an upcoming auction benefiting two neat charities that resonate with stylish women – Dress for Success and Clothes Off Our Back Foundation.

Clothes Off Our Back is a charitable organization that hosts charity auctions showcasing today’s hottest celebrity attire, experiences and memorabilia. Items are put up for bid to the public with proceeds going to benefit children’s charities around the globe. You can find out more HERE.

Dress for Success promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization offering services designed to help clients find jobs and remain employed. Since 1997, Dress for Success has served almost 450,000 women around the world.
