    Winemaker's Notes:

    2004 Swanson Merlot is a powerful, concentrated expression of the variety. The nose shows black cherry, smoke, blackberry, and espresso. The flavors in the mouth echo the aromatic expression nicely. The fine-grained tannins for which Swanson Merlots have become known provide the round, ripe texture of this wine.

    While drinking surprisingly well today, this wine will improve and be enjoyable for at least the next 6-8 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Tannic and fruity, this young Merlot has upfront primary cherry, blackberry, plum and coffee flavors, and is very dry. It’s balanced in every way, with a nice edge of oak, but those tannins dominate, and suggest rich meats and cheeses.

    This was recommended to us at a 5 star restaurant recently. We looked high and low and found it with wine.com. Smooth, full bodied, worth the price! Will buy again.

    Although a very good wine, I did not think it measured up to its 94 point rating. Perhaps cellaring for an additional year or two would enhance its flavor.
