White Merlot Wine – 2007 Beringer California Video Rating Review
White Merlot !!! — Like White Zinfandel, White Merlot is
a rose -blush wine, where the free run merlot juice is
fermented with the skins for a short amount time of
time to give the Blush color and add a bit of a red fruit
component to the flavor profile.
In theory this is just fine. but in practice, I find that
the White Zinfandels and White Merlots retain an excess
of sugar and are a bit too sweet for my palate.
No worries though, every palate is different and not too
surprisingly these blush style wines sell very well.
Okay, on to my review of the White Merlot, it’s a 2007
Beringer from California. Price $5 at the Portland Rite Aid.
Smell – A little bit of Strawberries – a bit of a
cotton candy smell also.
Taste – STRAWBERRY KOOL AID. – Damn, I thought I was 18
again chugging a bottle of Boone’s Farm. Way too sweet
Points – 79 nice strawberry component but Too much sugar
