Beringer Merlot 2008
Found this on sale at Arrow Wine. Have not tried as yet, but other reviews suggest this is not that good...hopefully they are wrong?
You get what you pay for - cheap Merlot. Slight aromas of plum and red berries - decent purplish hue. Though smooth, it is simply watered-down without any fruit tastes coming through. I was not expecting a lot from this wine and yet, it still disappointed me.
External Reviews for Beringer Merlot
Earth, wild berry, tar and black currant flavors are supple and round, with harmonious toasty oak and herbal tones. Drink now through 2005.
Here’s a great value wine that has everything that made you fall in love with this much-admired varietal in the first place. It’s packed with deep, dark berry fruit and nuanced with hints of cocoa, herb and earth. It’s the velvety texture though, that makes this Merlot instantly appealing and hard not to embrace. Beringer Vineyards has been producing fine Merlot for generations. Obviously they’ve found a formula that works just right.
Rubinrote Farbe mit violetten Reflexen, Aromen nach roten Früchten, Vanille, reifen schwarzen Kirschen und Pflaumen. Am Gaumen fruchtig, leicht würzig, weich und geschmeidig, mit ausgeglichener Säure und zugänglichem Tannin.
This simple and light merlot has notes of sweet cherry and a hint of cinnamon spice, ideal for a tomato-based pasta dish.

Jacob and Frederick Beringer founded Beringer Vineyards in the year 1870 in the heart of the Napa Valley. The winery houses it's wines in historic tunnels, hand chiseled over many years.
The Beringer Founders' Estate Merlot is approachable and delicious. Hints of plum and brown spice on the nose compliment the boysenberry, blackberry and blueberry finish on the palate. It's well-balanced, soft tannins make this wine a perfect accompaniment to a variety of foods, such as grilled meats or hearty vegetable dishes. - Winery
