Swanson Merlot 2016

"Expressive aromas of plums, crushed ripe cherries and a touch of cassis surround the opaque red-purple hue of this full bodied merlot. On the palate the tannins are powerful and balanced perfectly with the flavors of red fruits, pomegranate, cedar wood and a touch of dried oregano. A wine that will develop gracefully over the next 7-10 years." —winemaker

"The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Merlot (a barrel sample) has a nose of plums, flowers and herbs with earthy undertones. The full-bodied palate has good concentration and is very firm and chewy, showing oak nuances and finishing long and savory." —Wine Advocate
