Merlot vs Pinot Noir

Merlot versus pinot noir. It's the age-old question. Here's a posting you may enjoy, pulled from my sister-site, Trendinator:

Despite the 2004 film "Sideways", pinot noir hasn't caught up with merlot in global interest (but note the narrowing that started in '04):

pinot noir merlot


Except it's a different story in the United States, where the varietals have been neck-and-neck since the movie:

pinot noir merlot


I've got my own theory about why pinot noir was favored over merlot in the film.
