Oberon Wines Napa Valley Merlot 2018, California

It’s time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.

Deep purple in color with a short purple rim.

Fruity nose of plums, cherries, strawberries, spices, light wood, earth and vanilla.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with black plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, licorice and spices.

Tangy finish with soft tannins.

This is a nice everyday Merlot from Napa Valley. Easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel. Fruit forward with mild complexity.

Good right out of the bottle and spicy. I had it all by itself.

A blend of mostly Merlot grapes, with a touch of Syrah and Zinfandel. Aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.

13.9% alcohol by volume.

88 points.
