Swanson Vineyards Oakville Merlot, Napa Valley + Dark Chocolate Truffle Collection

Swanson's 2010 Oakville Merlot opens with a bouquet of black cherry and plum, leading to powerful notes of espresso and smoked berries. Its fine-grained tannins linger on the palate and transform as they combine with dark chocolate. The perfect gift for the sophisticated connoisseur! Each box includes 9 truffles, a bottle of hand-selected wine, tasting notes and pairing suggestions.

Manufactured in a facility that handles tree nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, milk, wheat and soy.

Consume within 10 days.

"In the past, I was silenced for even suggesting a Cabernet Sauvignon was a suitable pairing with dark chocolate, though I was convinced the duo was divine. So I insisted and matched each truffle collection to one of my favorite wines, synchronizing origins and complementary flavor notes in the wine and chocolate."
–Katrina
Swanson's Merlot grapes bask in the sunlight of two estate vineyards: the mid-valley Oakville Cross Road vineyard and the Schmidt Vineyards, adjacent to the Mayacamas Mountains. This round and supple Merlot (blended with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah) expresses ripe, juicy flavors on your palate almost immediately, followed by an undercurrent of smoke and espresso. Winemaker Chris Phelps describes the wine as an "iron fist in a velvet glove wine, with the extract and power expected of its Oakville provenance, yet possessing the finesse, grace and complexity of a right-bank Bordeaux."

Yum    
Perhaps I am biased, having had the opportunity to visit Swanson Winery and have a fantastic tasting, but every time I open a bottle the memories rush back:). This combination with the heavenly dark truffles- each unique, interestingly smooth and creamy, rich concoction makes me so happy! Thank you vosges.
