Complex aromas of cherries, plums, vanilla and earthy. Full bodied with nicely layered structure, concentrated fruit and grainy tannins.
Long drying finish, lovely wine. Was happy to find a couple more bottles even if this wine was release one month ago. Will lay it down for one to two years.
Tasted December 2010.

The 2006 Beringer Merlot is a medium bodied, integrated wine, with intense aromas of red currant, cherry, smoke, oak and vanilla. Tannins are refined (decant for 30 to 60 min) and the finish is long and a bit acidic. Good to drink now and will be 2012 to 2018. My impression: quite NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 90.5 pts. Tasted Dec/10.
