Often used but not unique short name for the two red grape varieties Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Although they are closely related (the parents of Cabernet Sauvignon are Cabernet Franc x Sauvignon Blanc), it is not always clear which one is meant. Especially in Northern Italy, it is not clear for some DOC wines which variety or composition is included. As a rule, Cabernet Sauvignon is more likely to be meant, especially because it is simply more common. But Cabernet is confusingly also a synonym for the grape varieties Béquignol Noir and Carmenère.

The red grape variety comes from France. The name is probably derived from the French word for blackbird (merle), because these birds like to eat the berries, which are very sweet when fully ripe. However, the name can also be an allusion to the black-blue colouring of the berries similar to that of the bird. There are more than 60 synonyms, which testify the worldwide distribution. The most important are Alicante Noir, Bigney, Black Alicante, Blue Merlot, Bordò, Crabutet, Crabutet Noir, Hebigney, Médoc Noir, Merlau, Merlot Black, Merlot Blue, Merlot Crni, Merlot Nero, Merlot Noir, Merlott, Merlou, Picard, Pikard, Plant Médoc,...
