I thought this was going to be the silliest of silly wines, but I am actually enjoying the 2005 Oyster Bay Merlot. (
It’s balanced, has nice fruit, and a a little bit of smoke on the finish. Like a baby right-bank Bordeaux. (I cannot believe I just typed that.) Can’t say that I’m a fan of Pinot Noir or Sauv Blanc from New Zealand. But I like this little Merlot. Should be about ten bucks I think. Pleasant! A nice little wine, really a little charmer.
UPDATE:I think this is the perfect cheeseburger wine. And when I say cheeseburger, I don’t mean one with a salad on it. Lettuce, tomato, onion? Give me a break. You have beef, cheese, and maybe some ketchup and/or mayo. It’s not a salad, it’s a burger!!! Jesus!
