Swanson Vineyards Merlot 2013
Wine Spectator 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.
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.
