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
Has a lush perfume of plummy berry, oak, mushroom and coffee aromas. Itrsquo;s not a magnificent blcokbuster. Still, itrsquo;s a great inexpensive wine, filled with flavor, harmony and balance.
Earth, wild berry, tar and black currant flavors are supple and round, with harmonious toasty oak and herbal tones. Drink now through 2005.
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.
Himbeerrosa Farbe, Aromen die an rote Beeren, besonders Erdbeeren, Pfirsiche und Wassermelonen erinnern. Am Gaumen frische Fruchtaromen, leicht süsslich, spritzig und erfrischend.
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.
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
