Swanson 2011 Merlot

Merlot has remained at the core of Swanson Vineyard’s identify since Clarke Swanson purchased the estate vineyards in 1985. Located in the Oakville area of Napa, this wine is made from two small blocks in the Rutherford and Yountville area. This wine has a vibrant garnet color and robust aromas of freshly crushed red and black cherries. There are notes of sweet blackberry, coffee, and all-spice which add to the complexity of the wine. In the mouth this wine exhibits ample black and red fruits, a medium body, and a fragrant, lingering finish. This wine is drinkable now or can be aged through 2022. This wine is priced at $14.99 at Costco FO through July 4th. This wine is normally priced at $19.99 at Costco FO and around $28 at other outlets. This wine would be a nice addition to any cellar.

Cheers!!!
