Oberon Merlot Napa 2005, 88 points

The nose had an old world smell to it. Good amount of oak and lots of black olive. More black olive than I have ever smelled in a red. It was pretty cool because I like uniqueness. Hints of cinnamon and green peppers. The taste was strong with fruit right away but the transition was fast and a little short. However the finish was not very bitter and left you with a nice soft taste of fruit and cinnamon. Overall ok and I would give it a try for 60 bucks.
