Swanson 2019 Merlot Napa Valley

A wet start to the year helped recharge the soil moisture profiles in many of the Napa Valley vineyards resulting in lower yields across the valley. Conditions improved throughout summer encouraging the vineyards to "catch up" from the sluggish start. The warm and dry days throughout harvest developed the intense flavors found in this beloved Merlot.

Mr. Wonderful's Notes

Opaque, dark scarlet in the glass. Intense aromas of plum, crushed red fruits and dried oregano develop into more floral and minerality tones of violets and wet slate. On the palate, generous layers of red fruit, ripe plum, brown sugar and blackcurrants sit alongside each other with more savory characteristics of seasoned leather and black tea.
