The Sweet Kiss of Merlot

BeringerMerlotMerlot is out of fashion with those who drink the trends. The rest of us keep a Merlot handy for romantic moods, or the “˜feel-good’ quality that it delivers.

I’m always amused when I see people pouring wines that are identical to Merlot, and hearing them say “I really dislike Merlot”.

Beringer Merlot is a doll. Delicious spicy fruitiness and friendliness. Lush, plush without feeling heavy or excessive. Dangerously gulpable. Could be mistaken for Zin. Perfect for holiday entertaining, or any night with your sweetie.

BEST USE: The mood for feel-good wine. Warm hugs.
