Food Pairings for Beringer Vineyards Merlot Napa Valley
Popped and poured. Dark garnet color. Nose of earthy blackberry and black cherry. Flavors of sweet raspberries, tobacco and pepper. Light tannins on the finish that have become more apparent as the wine gets more air. A very nice Merlot from Howell Mtn.

Quite rich and flavorful, with layers of currant, black cherry, anise, cedar and toasty vanilla-scented notes, finishing long and detailed. Drink now through 2009. 7,500 cases made. (JL) Wine Spectator. A Merlot wine from California in USA. 1997 Beringer Merlot Private Reserve Bancroft Ranch 750ml
One of the top Merlots in the world, this wine has a quality that can only be described as all-around richness. Unlike some Merlots I've tasted, this wine from Bancroft has no hole in the middle. Beringer's Bancroft Ranch vineyard is located at an elevation of 1,800 feet on Howell Mountain, a growing area with well-drained volcanic soils. In 1984, Howell Mountain became the first area within the Napa Valley appellation to be declared a separate viticultural area (AVA) for the distinct characteristics of its wine grapes. Bancroft Ranch produces clusters with small berries whose high skin-to-fruit ratio results in well-structured wines with concentrated flavors. Winemaster Ed Sbragia produced the first vineyard-designated Bancroft Ranch Merlot from the 1987 vintage.
