Nail the exact color merlot in your design by using the code from any one of these systems for color identification.
|RGB||r: 115, g: 52, b: 58|
|HSL||h: 354°, s: 38%, l: 33%|
|HSV||h: 354°, s: 55%, v: 45%|
|CMYK||c: 0%, m: 55%, y: 50%, k: 55%|
If you're identifying color for pretty much anything digital, you're working in an RGB colorspace. If the project you're working on requires percentage representation, merlot is made of 45% red, 20% green, and 23% blue.
If you're identifying color for a print project, you're most likely using a CMYK colorspace—the percentages are 0% cyan, 55% magenta, 50% yellow, 55% black.
