Swanson’s Vineyards Modern House Wines

The delicious Modern House Wine is a proprietary red wine, carefully blended to appeal to a wide swath of palates… from beer-and-whiskey-loving wine novice to the most discriminating oenophile on your guest list. Swanson Vineyards’ modern House Wines were even recommended by Oprah in her O magazine.

Predominantly Syrah, with some Cabernet Sauvignon added to the blend, this 2009 California Proprietary Red Wine exemplifies the ripe, concentrated quality of the long, cool 2009 vintage.

The wine has a youthful purple color. Ripe, jammy blueberry and raspberry fruit dominate the aroma, with hints of red licorice and vanilla.

The wine is rich and sweet on the palate, with well-rounded, mouth-coating tannins. In addition to ripe black cherry and black raspberry, there is a suggestion of exotic spices.

The Just Married wine is also available in white crafted from a tiny-batch of Pinot Grigio with a splash of Chardonnay. It is the perfect wine choice for your cocktail, luncheon or dinner reception: crisp, yet bursting with fresh mango and litchi, balanced with a Meyer lemon zest.
