2005 Beringer Merlot: A bit acidic at first, then smoothed out. Not that flavorful.

april 17, 2010: we had fought the good fight. time and time again, we had walked past the delicious scent of the schnucks rotisserie chicken, thinking we could always be more creative than *that*: but tonight, greg finally gave in. and it was, we have to admit, delicious.

we paired it with a 2005 beringer napa valley merlot, which began with a fair amount of acidity. we decanted it, smoothing out the texture to a very subtle chocolate and cherry flavor. we could have chilled this californian and studied its temporal evolution, but we were just too darn hungry for that logic. purchased at schnucks. think it was under $20.
