Food Pairings for Beringer Vineyards Merlot Napa Valley
This is a very nice wine. Gentle tones, warm fruit flavors, berries, jam, some chocolate, medium notes, well-balanced without acidity, medium finish. excellent everyday wine.
chalky with tanins
good dinner wine for all occasions
Save your money. I know this is hardly the Beringer flagship wine, thank goodness. The flavor is hardly a compliment to a good steak, rather a valiant effort to overpower it. I had hoped that opening it a few hours early would help it lay down a little. Nope. I admit I am a wine novice, but to me, it was horrible.

"Black cherry, blueberry and cocoa mint aromas blend with fruit forward flavors of black cherry and plum on the palate creating a Merlot that I find very satisfying from the moment I pick up the glass. Hints of cocoa, brown spice, toffee and vanilla bean mingle with the concentrated berry flavors and ripe tannins that extend throughout the long finish." – Winemaker Laurie Hook 2005 Beringer NV Merlot - Aromas of ripe plum, blueberry, van bean, coco, mint, pipe tobacco Rich, ripe tannins, black cherry, spice and toffee flavors 84% Merlot, 13% Cabernet, 3% Cabernet Franc 33% new oak
