Oak Leaf Vineyards Merlot Non-Vintage, California 

My Rating 83 Points.   

Price $4.
While getting my hair cut, I was served with a very cold red wine, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim with medium intensity.

Soft nose of blueberries, plums, cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, black pepper and herbs.

Medium bodied with medium acidity.

Dry to off dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, bell pepper, oak, charcoal, earth, vegetables, bitter herbs and black pepper.

Short finish with fine grained tannins and tart cherries.

A Nice surprise on this simple and inexpensive Merlot. Balanced and Drinkable without any flash. Not bad at all.

I would recommend to drink it chilled, to keep the impurities out of the way. 😁

12.5% alcohol by volume.
