We glorify day-to-day living by introducing luxury products that were once considered stuffy and intimidating in a delightful and accessible manner. We encourage you to plop ice cubes in your glass of Rosato during the summertime; savor the naughty combination of chocolate bonbons with estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon; or serve American caviar and potato chips with Pinot Grigio -- just because you want to.

This isnt a wine to age. Its soft and appealing in its charms, offering drink-me-now cherries, red currants, herbs and sandalwood. The winemaker blended it with a little Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Verdot, which gives it structural and flavor complexities. - S.H. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 88 PointsSwansons 2010 Merlot reveals a hint of tomato skins intertwined with red and black fruits, soft tannins, an attractive underbelly and texture, good length and a spicy, plump, round, generous mouthfeel. It is an attractive, seductive Merlot to drink over the next 5-6 years. - Robert Parker 87 Points
