Merlot plays a minor role in just about every important wine region in the world. The primary exception is Washington, where Merlot has been a major player since the early 1990s.

Today, Merlot is the No. 4 wine grape in Washington, but it trails Chardonnay, Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon by a tiny amount, and these big four varieties comprise about 80 percent of the state’s total production.
