For dinner tonight I opened up a fashionably inexpensive bottle of wine. It was an Oak Leaf Merlot. The merlot was a great table wine, I think I’ll buy a case to have on hand. I rated it a 3 out of 5 stars but it got an extra 1/2 point for being decent and very inexpensive. The cost is $2.97 a bottle at my local WalMart. The only down side about the wine means it’s a trip to WalMart to purchase it. They’re the only place I know which sells Oak Leaf Vineyard wine. It had a good balance, a few tanins with a deep berry earthy taste and was a decent Merlot. It went very well with dinner. I made greek ravioli and it went so well together my husband suggested that I blog the wine review along with the greek ravioli recipe. This recipe serves 2 and is quite good and very easy. It’s one of those recipes which tastes like you went to more trouble than you actually did, and we all like those don’t we?
