Review of 2006 Swanson Vineyards Merlot

Happy Hour: 2006 Swanson Vineyards Merlot

If you're of the mindset that Merlot is a grape that's boring and not worth drinking, I've got a bottle that will change your way of thinking. Swanson (yes, it's a descendent of the company that makes the chicken broth!) Vineyard's 2006 Merlot is unlike any other Merlot I've tasted. It's easy to drink, yet complex with a rich berry aroma and deep ruby color. It's so delightfully well-balanced that upon first sip, I had no clue that I was drinking a Merlot. I paired it with pasta, but found that it's also enjoyable on its own. I highly recommend you seek it out!

Have you sipped any memorable Merlot recently?
