Swanson Merlot Oakville 2009

External Review by We Speak Wine:

The 2009 Swanson Oakville Merlot is the perfect reminder of why so many serious red wine drinkers like Merlot. Visually, aromatically and on the palate, the wine is plush and generous. The color is dark garnet with a purple edge. The nose is captivating, with aromas of fresh, ripe black cherry, plum, raspberry, and well-integrated toasted oak. In the mouth, very ripe black and red fruits surround a core of velvety tannin. The finish is enticing, sily-smooth, long and harmonious. This Merlot will continue to improve in the bottle, with optimum drinkability from 2013-2017. - Chris Phelps, Winemaker ** SOLD OUT **
