2011 Swanson Cygnet Merlot
Oakville, Napa Valley
Shows an exuberant array of aromas, including plum, black cherry, exotic spices, espresso and sweet vanilla. On the palate, there is excellent definition and considerable power, yet at the same time, the wine is long, graceful and elegant. Restraint in using just one-third new oak allows the lush fruit and succulent ripe tannins of this wine to be front and center.
