Beringer Napa Valley Merlot 1999
89-92 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Red-ruby. Burnished oak, plum, minerals and bitter chocolate on the nose. Sweet, lush and concentrated, with a firm mineral spine contributing to the impression of structure. Finishes with big, chewy, ripe tannins and excellent persistence. (May/Jun 2002)
For an inexpensive Merlot this one is very smooth.
So much better with time. I had two bottles left from a case down in my cellar and just cracked one open today. I don't think the last one will survive the weekend. As I said, so much better with time.
External Reviews for Beringer Napa Valley Merlot
Blackberry, cinnamon and sweet cream aromas give Beringerrsquo;s bouquet a fresh-out-of-the-oven pie smell. This soft, supple Shiraz has juicy berry fruit, black chocolate and vanilla flavors and a clean, tart berry fruit and mineral finish. An easy-to-drink crowd-pleaser.
Toasty oak tones of mocha and vanilla integrate nicely with black currant and plum flavors. Excellent value. Drink now through 2005.
Nice for the price. Therersquo;s some juicy fruit along with greener, thinner notes, but well-structured, with the velvety tannins of far more expensive wines. Dry, but soft. A good everyday wine.
