Think Pink to beat the heat! Try this White Merlot

I was looking for a rosé for this weekend’s bbq’s, knowing it would be hot and we’d need something refreshing. I have my usual ‘go to’ Rosés, my favorite being  Rosé of Pinot Noir.  But then I saw this one, a “White Merlot” my arm couldn’t resist grabbing it and putting it in my wine caddy. I do love a great Merlot! It was after that, that I realized what the price was. $4.97. Price doesn’t factor into my decision to TRY a wine, it may play a part when I decided to stock up on a wine.

So, today, I chilled this bottle, and poured a glass.

2009 Beringer White Merlot

Boy, it’s beautiful! the color is vibrant, not really pink, more of a light red. The nose is clean (translation: no mustiness) The flavor of watermelon and fresh raspberry is just so refreshing! The finish is smooth and creamy.

So, with a price tag of under $5.00 there is no reason not to try this wine!
