Black Oak 2016 Merlot
The Black Oak Merlot is garnet red in color, deep and rich looking. The wine is warm and layered with cocoa and ripe blueberry aromas. The fresh plum flavors, are indicative of a homemade, dense-like strawberry jam, with hints of black cherry and red licorice.
With a fine tannin structure, this medium-bodied wine is consistently smooth, all the way through to the finish.
The Black Oak Merlot would be nice simply on its own, or served with a variety of meals. We like it with deep-dish pepperoni pizza, spinach lasagna or a slow-cooked beef stew.
