California Collection By Beringer Merlot 2009
I'm very happy with the plush structure of this wine. The wine's berry fruit, vanilla, and caramel aromas along with a hint of smoke and dill, complement its blackberry and boysenberry flavors. The structureof this wine is perfectly balanced, and its weight and volume on the palate make this wine eminently drinkable.
External Reviews for California Collection By Beringer Merlot
Focused plum, berry and herb flavors ride on a supple though tightly knit frame. A new California appellation from Beringer. Drink now through 2003.
To achieve the perfect color in their White Merlot, Beringer's winemaking team gently destems and presses the Merlot grapes, leaving the red skins in contact with the juice for approximately three hours. As soon as the desired soft, red-purple hue is achieved, the juice is removed. Slow, cool fermentations follow to retain the bright acidity, fresh melon and citrus flavors. The resulting wine is a vibrant blend of fresh berry and zesty orange peel flavors, with a hint of nutmeg spice. - Winery
Earth, wild berry, tar and black currant flavors are supple and round, with harmonious toasty oak and herbal tones. Drink now through 2005.
Himbeerrosa Farbe, Aromen die an rote Beeren, besonders Erdbeeren, Pfirsiche und Wassermelonen erinnern. Am Gaumen frische Fruchtaromen, leicht süsslich, spritzig und erfrischend.
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 ** SOLD OUT **
Ripe cherry and plum flavors, subtle herbal notes and soft tannic structure combine to produce a wine filled with rich flavor and a velvety texture.
Fine for this price, a fruity, somewhat tannic wine thatrsquo;s dry and balanced and pretty rich. A little bit of Petite Syrah and Zinfandel add darker plum, roasted coffee and chocolate layers to Merlotrsquo;s cherries and blackberries. Smooth enough to drink with fine meats and cheeses.
