Swanson Vineyards 2018 Merlot, Napa Valley, 750 ml

Dark opaque red. Vibrant aromas of fresh red fruits, crushed strawberries with a touch of dried herbs, mocha and roasted coffee beans. On the palate the initial approach is silky smooth with the tannins building in a long lasting finish. The flavor profile brings in dark cherries, dried fruit a touch of bay leaf. The slight menthol notes compliment the crisp acidity and nicely placed warmth on the finish.
