The philosophy of Oyster Bay is to produce fine, distinctly regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit flavors. The grapes come from a unique environment in which Merlot produces its vibrant, fully ripened varietal flavors. Essentially Oyster Bay Merlot is about elegance and intensity of fruit. The hero is always freshness of ripe fruit, spice and soft tannins on the palate. Enjoy over the next three years with everything from pizza to spaghetti bolognese and from roast turkey to pork chops.
