Merlot is the most popular planted grape in the Bordeaux region right next to Cabernet Sauvignon. It produces a very juicy, fruity, soft, and medium bodied red wine that is very versatile when it comes to pairing with food. The fruit profiles in this wine range from blackberries, cherries, plums, and blueberries. Merlot's also possess the flavor profiles of spice, black pepper, and cocoa.
So what strain did I pick to pair with this wine? Grape ape of course! The strain fits in perfectly with the flavor profiles creating a deeper fruity flavor and earthen tones. This drink pairs perfectly with red meats, pork, chicken, salmon, scallops, mushroom based dishes, charred or grilled style meats, salads, prawns, and pasta.
Once again, this is a quick and easy method to infuse already bottled wine without having to go through the fermentation process. This is the perfect Indica that can help combat anxiety, insomnia, pain, migraines, nausea, headaches, depression, chronic pain, and stress relief. Enjoy with a nice dinner after a long day or curl up by the fire with a loved one for a relaxing night. Enjoy!
Mise en place:
6 finely ground grams of Grape Ape (buds - not trim or shake)

Gently stir the mixture making sure all the cannabis is fully saturated. Seal the jar, making sure no air is left in the jar then place into a cool dark cupboard.
