Swanson Vineyards Merlot 2013

Expressive aromas of plums, crushed rip cherry's and a touch of cassis surround the opaque red-purple hue of this full bodied merlot. On the palate the tannins are powerful and balanced perfectly with the flavors of red fruits, pomegranate, cedar wood and a touch of dried oregano. A wine that will develop gracefully over the next 7-10 years.

Taut and well-framed, with notes of slate and spice to the dried berry and cherry flavors. Dried herbal accents show on the tannic finish. Drink now. 6,500 cases made.

This youthful wine shows the exuberance of tannin and power of the vintage, finding its time to unwind. Small percentages of Merlot and Petit Verdot figure in the blend. Oak, cedar and herb jump out most, with faint layers of blackberry and black cherry.
