Very easy to drink wine. Opened it and aired for about 2 and a half hours. Just smooth, fruity and normal.
Two and a half glasses
Nose of rhubarb, currant and licorice. Fair flavor on the palate with balanced eucalyptus and cherry. BV tasting 11/14/09 Lee's Discount Liquor
A nice ruby color. The aromas display of red cherry and ripe plum. It is medium-bodied wine. The taste is of blackberry, mocha and bing cherry. A tiny bit acidic, yet still well-balanced. There are smoky oak notes and moderate tannins on the finish.
Was able to drink it but didn't particularly enjoy. Not much fruit, rather bitter and sour.
I really enjoyed this Merlot -perfectly balanced with no bite and dry enough to enjoy with or without food. Nice fruity flavors on tongue.
can't beat the full taste for the price!
External Reviews for Beaulieu Bv Coastal Merlot
The wine opens with vibrant red-fruit aromas and sweet baking spices. The palate is smooth and supple, with bright acidity and refined tannins. Raspberries and ripe cherry flavors are met by a sweet oak finish.
Kind of smoky, with an herbal edge thatrsquo;s backed by currant and blackberry notes. The finish is bright. Drink now through 2002.
This is the kind of wine that allows everyday consumers to experience the joys of a beautifully made dry red wine. Itrsquo;s not a blockbuster, but with the deep berry and stone fruit flavors, pretty tannins and rich, dry texture, itrsquo;s among the best of its class. Kudos to this winery for keeping the price so low. Amazing value.
Dark ruby-violet color. Strong black-cherry, cooked plum and Italian herbs are the dominant scents one immediately finds in this wine. Medium-full bodied, with ripe tannins supporting immediate flavors of black cherry, herbs and a touch of vanilla-oak, this richly flavored wine reveals classic Merlot character in an easy-to-drink style that doesnrsquo;t stint on intensity at a price! Delicious with roast meats, barbecue and other strong flavored dishes.

Appealing varietal Merlot plum-cherry aromas are enhanced by slightly minty cocoa-herb scents as well from the oak. Reveals good sweet coffee-cherry flavors, balanced by soft tannins.
