Merlot U.S.A Prod. & Btld. Beringer NV

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Vanilla, black cherry and plum aromas and flavors open up as a soft silky structure that carry fruit flavors and touches of sweet-spice to a lovely finish. This wine is a delicious accompaniment to roasted chicken served with chutney or cheesy tomato lasagna.

With their 215 acre plot of land purchased in 1875 and the winery founded in 1876, Jacob and Frederick Beringer’s winery is the oldest continually operating winery in Napa Valley.

  It is impossible to take Beringer’s long history lightly. With their 215 acre plot of land purchased in 1875 and the winery founded in 1876, Jacob and Frederick Beringer’s winery is the oldest continually operating winery in Napa Valley. In 2001, it was named a historic district in the National Register for Historic Places. Current winemaker Laurie Hook and winemaster Ed Sbragia continue to draw from over a dozen vineyards to create world-class wines from varying soil compositions and climates. The winery managed to survive, and even thrive, during Prohibition by selling sacramental wines with a federal license. Since the wine was being made for religious purposes, it was legal! A unique aspect of Beringer is the tunnel system that was carved into the side of Spring Mountain around 1880. Chinese immigrant workers, the same workers that helped build the Trans-Continental Railroad, spent years hand-chiseling the 1,200 feet of tunnels. To this day, the tunnels act as a natural insulator, keeping the temperature between 58 and 60 degrees year-round, ideal for storing wine. Read less

This simple and light merlot has notes of sweet cherry and a hint of cinnamon spice, ideal for a tomato-based pasta dish.

Pleasing with a soft and silky texture. The savory lack cherry and plum have an enduring finish.

Ripe plum and currant flavors are immediately evident in the aromas and flavors of the Beringer Classics Merlot. A sweet, toasty note of oak rounds out the blend and gives the wine a nice body and mouth feel. Approachable and delicious from the ‑rst sip, this wine is an everyday indulgence.
