External Reviews for Oak Grove Reserve Merlot
Juicy and easygoing, with modest cherry, cola and caramel notes.
Dry, smooth and surprisingly rich for the price. Shows pleasantly spicy cherry, bacon and herb flavors, with a silk and satin texture. Great value in an everyday Merlot.
This wine marries rich, complex flavors of blackberries and plum to supple tannins that give way to a smooth finish.
Rated one of the Best Values in 2002 by the Wine and Spirit Guild of America (an association of the countryrsquo;s top wine retailers), this wine marries rich, complex flavors of blackberries and plum to supple tannins that give way to a smooth finish.
Oak Grove has a near-perfect record of Best Buys, and this rsquo;06 Merlot continues their streak. Itrsquo;s a dry, smoothly tannic wine, with classic flavors of red and black currants, cherries, violets, herbs, cedar and spice that are wrapped into fine, firm tannins. Great by-the-glass restaurant Merlot at this price.
