Judd's Hill Merlot
Judd’s Hill Swig Vineyard Merlot 2009
Napa, California

Review: Oh, how I adore Merlot. With it's super soft tannins and tasty dark fruit flavors, it's an easy drinking pleasure. This wine has delicious notes of black currants, plums, and dried violets. There's also an interesting herbal note of eucalyptus.

Judd's Hill Swing Vineyard Merlot 2009 won a Silver Medal at the San Diego International Wine Competition this year (March 2013). I have to agree with the esteemed judges -- this wine is a winner.

Food Pairing: I think this wine pairs with pretty much anything. I had it with a bison and black bean chili! 

Bottom Line: Super yummy, smooth and balanced. I dig it.

Wine Geekery:

  • VINTAGE: 2009
  • PLACE: Napa Valley AVA (American Viticultural Area)
  • GRAPE: Merlot
  • BOOZE: 14.2%
  • CELLAR: Drink now or hold

What's the damage? Super Premium
