Each year, Oakley Five Reds is a unique red blend that is easy drinking and medium bodied with the spicy berry flavors that want in their Zinfandels. The Rhone varietals add pepper, cherry and dark fruit character. The wine has smooth tannins and luscious fruit and should age well into the future.
The 2005 Oakley Five Reds is a blend of 77% Merlot, 10% Alicante Bouschet, 8% Mourvedre, 3% Sangiovese and 2% Zinfandel. Flavors of blackberries, black pepper and spicy berries make this wine an excellent accompaniment to spicy western grub or tomato-based dishes. Round up your posse and enjoy!
