The Beaulieu Vineyard merlot is from the small town of Rutherford in the Napa Valley. The experts say that this wine has “complex layers of crushed summer berries, ripe plum, chocolate and spice”. This merlot is similar to many cabernet sauvignons I have tried–the aroma, the smooth finish, and the dark fruit taste that lingers. And, yes, it does pair up with an In N’ Out double double just fine. This BV also is great fuel for a run on the beach. 5/5. Bonus that I got this bottle for free from Marriott for my birthday anniversary.
