Buy this wine because great Merlot like this is hard to find at this price point


This is a great introduction to more complicated Napa Merlot - this wine has all of the characteristic flavor of a Merlot without anything being out of balance. Definitely another one to try if you think you don't like Merlot. 2,176 cases produced.


Located in the heart of the Alexander Valley, White Oak Vineyards & Winery is dedicated to producing small quantities of distinguished wines from 750 acres of estate vineyards. Roughly 10% of this fruit is used in White Oak wines with the balance being sold to other well known wineries. Their Russian River Valley vineyards produce Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, while the Napa Valley vineyards produce Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. From the vineyards around the tasting room in Alexander Valley, White Oak produces a small bottling of their legendary old vine Zinfandel and two Reserve Bordeaux style blends which are only sold in the tasting room.
