Oyster Bay 2013 Merlot

Dark in color with a mild nose of plums coming through. On the mid pallet the wine displays some plum along with red cherries (think cab sauv). On the medium length finish the wine has some mild pepper along with some tannins. Not a bad Merlot. I would give it an 88 or so …

Oyster Bay Merlot 2012 Merlot—VINTAGES#: 692343 Style – Medium-bodied & Fruity  ›
Bright and brimming with fruit, this Merlot delights with plum, dark cherry, gentle wood smoke and notions of chocolate cake. Zippy acidity gives nice delineation to this juicy, elegant wine. Tuck it away for up to three years, or enjoy it tonight with rare roast beef. (VINTAGES panel, Feb. 2013) $18.95
