Swanson Vineyards-Merlot-Oakville-Napa Valley-California-2007-$22.99-A nose of black cherry and spice, dark garnet in color.  A medium to full bodied Merlot, with black cherry, raspberry, currants and licorice, has a bit of heat, good but not as great as the 2005 vintage, WE was a bit off on rating .                   RP-87                WS-87                WE-94                 CR-88                Good with meats, chicken, pasta.
