Extremely good merlot. Dark garnet in color, with lots of berries on the palate and a grip of warm tannins that were in balance with the fruit. Would definitely buy more.

A true meeting of the Oakville and Bordeaux minds, this wine retains the weight and texture of the New World, with the nuances and complexity of Pomerol. The nose exhibits dried cherry, raspberry and a smoky blackberry, with the flavors in the mouth echoing this impression nicely. The fine-grained tannins for which our merlots are known provide the round, ripe texture of this wine. While drinking surprisingly well today, the 2003 Swanson merlot will improve and be enjoyable for at least the next six to eight years.
