Barefoot California Merlot NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Merlot is perfect for any occasion. It is a decadent fruit-filled combination of red cherry, boysenberry and plum with melt-in-your-mouth chocolate notes and mild tannins to round out the flavors.

We got our start as a "garage wine" back in the Sixties but really stepped up what Barefoot was about in 1986 when Michael Houlihan and partner Bonnie Harvey decided to relaunch the brand. The two of them, along with the first Barefooter, Randy Arnold, believed in making and selling wine that was both delicious and affordable and that could be enjoyed by everyone from first-time wine-consumers to hard-core aficionados. We believe that we can both promote our brand and satisfy our desire to make the world a better place by partnering with various non-profits and pouring at various fund-raising events. Over the years, Barefoot has been a part of thousands of non-profit events and our popularity has grown along with our support of these ground-breaking organizations. We took another big step in 2006 by becoming a sponsor of the Association of Volleyball Professions (AVP) Beach Volleyball supporting a grassroots sport that originated in our state-California. We’ve also teamed up with the grass roots non-profit, the Surfrider Foundation, to create the Barefoot Beach Rescue Project, designed to clean up beaches and ensure they are "Barefoot friendly." These two initiatives help us spread a sense of fun in the sun while furthering the Barefoot philosophy of giving back. Over the years, our wines have garnered numerous accolades and professional awards, but more importantly to us, we have a growing circle of loyal fans who love to enjoy our wine and who have joined us in the spirit of giving back to our communities and to our world. For us, and we hope for all of you, that’s an achievement well worth toasting with a glass of Barefoot wine. Read less

Blackberry and spice on the nose, hint of dark fruit and then a nice balanced smooth oaky finish. Nice, for $5!!

Nice wine. Full flavored, dry in the middle with a nice finish. Quite smooth, actually. Great wine for the money.

Wow, this is a terrible wine. I love reds and this is no red. Turpentine maybe

I'll admit that I am not a huge fan of merlot, but I thought I'd give Barefoot's a try because I generally do like the brand. Wasn't really impressed and would not purchase again. However, my friend (who does like merlot) thought it was decent and a good buy for the price, so I'll give it a 3.

Pretty impressive for the price, this Merlot has juicy, candied flavors of cherries, blackberries, red currants and chocolate that are wrapped into a smooth texture. A great buy for a wine this tasty.

Heaps of blueberry, blackberry and mocha flavors make up the palate of this dry, soft Merlot. A few drops of Petite Sirah, Malbec and Petit Verdot add layers of flavor and texture.

The perfect combo of cherry, boysenberry, plum and chocolate flavors. Raised right, it’s well rounded with mild tannins.
