Great Wine! Every day Wine. Couldn't believe a wine this inexpensive can be this Great!!!
Eight Dollars, A Great Choice
This wine while not as complex as I personally like, it has some definite qualities to make it a superb wine at 8 dollars a bottle. Not too smooth not too acidic. If you want a inexpensive but not cheap wine, I suggest Oak Grove Merlot 2008 Reserve.
Splendid Merlot for Only $8!
This is a terrific bottle of inexpensive Merlot... brimming with lots of plum flavors and spice... a perfect opener for any dinner party or sipping occasion... we keep a bottle of this on hand at all times... don't let the small price fool you - this one's not to be ignored.
Oak Grove Merlot 2005 Reserve
An Enjoyable Wine
I am a novice to wine in general, merlot in particular. I was pointed in the direction of Gumdale and Oak Grove. We enjoyed the Gumdale so much that we bought a second bottle before opening the Oak Grove. We will buy both again, they both turned out to be excellent reccommendations.
A good value for the price
It's smooth, flavorful, and light...almost like a Pinot Noir. Definitely a good value. Double bottles are even more affordable. We're serving this at our wedding coming up!
Good Consistent Wine
Recommended by the Wine Store Staff - This is our everyday wine
Great Everyday Wine!
This wine is medium bodied with berry flavors and a smooth finish. One of the better Merlots I have tried for the money.
A real treat for the pallet and the pocketbook!
This was universally well received by all who tasted this Merlot at our dinner party. It's a really nice wine that I'll be sure to buy again.
While not "special", this is a good inexpensive everyday merlot with plenty to recommend it at this price level.
Good Merlot value
I enjoyed this wine. Would not hesitate serving it to friends. I did not experience the acidic taste that another mentioned. Will purchase again.
very attractive, great price
Fruity, soft, delicious, easy to drink - fine value in a very pleasant Merlot.
This merlot is a great wine for the price. It has full flavor and has become a favorite for our household.
Remarkably Smooth - 2008
by Thumper 12141604
This 2008 Merlot from bulk wine producer Oak Grove is much "better" than most of it's peers. It is a soft, gentle, well crafted very tasty value priced red table wine with none of the usual off-putting acidic or unfocused "fatal" flaws associated with wines at this price point. Dark fruit, plum, vanilla, oak, and even some muted tannins on the fleeting finish. Will pair well with modest mid week dinner fare. Recommended within it's limitations at 3.5 stars ("86" pts.).
A good value for an everyday wine.
Oak Grove Merlot
memory? good. $7.99
Not our favorite wine. I am a wine novice, true, but nevertheless this is my story. Not a wine recommended for someone starting out from sweeter whites.
" Kenney " seems to have a poor grasp of his palate. This wine is soft, fruity and quite pleasant. It's a party wine all the way. "Acidic"?!?! Not even close K-man. You're either A. Confused or B. A Novice wino. Acidic is Italy...Loire Valley SB....NOT Oak Grove Merlot. This is a solid buy.
spicier than Australian, plum, dark, rich - a bit tannic
Horrible! Could not drink it and had to throw it out. Do not recommend.
Very acidic. Horrible!
