Swanson Vineyards Merlot 2013


SKU 6258


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.

Wine EnthusiastThis 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.

Wine AdvocateSwanson's 2013 Merlot, 81% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, has a saturated dark color, but seems narrowly constructed and not very charming, even for a 2013. It's a big wine, but burly and disjointed. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
