Merlot[edit]

You added Merlot, but we have merlot already. There was some discussion with Semper a while back about capitalization / proper nouns / etc. regarding wines. He may remember more of the discussion than I do. --EncycloPetey (talk) 07:08, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Okay, thanks. I know there's been discussion re animal breeds, and I think the loose agreement was to have them lowercase only, but I didn't know that was true for wine. In my own limited experience AFAIR, Merlot is far more common than merlot, which is why I added it; but I'll refrain from adding further such until I check with SB (unless I forget the present conversation).​—msh210 07:11, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Semi-related, I noticed the other day that we have Martini and martini. You can see how I attempted to reduce the duplication. - -sche (discuss) 03:24, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
