Swanson Vineyards-Merlot-Oakville-Napa Valley-California-2005-$20.99-A spicy nose of dark fruit, dark in color.  Cherry, toasty vanilla notes,  red currants, and Asian spice.   A smooth enjoyable Merlot, I had not drank a Merlot for some time and so I am glad I tried this one.   Second time I have tried this year, a solid wine.                WS-87          CR-4.5          Good with chicken, steak, pasta.
