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
Earth, wild berry, tar and black currant flavors are supple and round, with harmonious toasty oak and herbal tones. 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.
Toasty oak tones of mocha and vanilla integrate nicely with black currant and plum flavors. Excellent value. Drink now through 2005.

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.
