|And, this magnum is as it appears – long like the finish.|
I love magnums for parties and foraging. And when I had dinner with Chris Phelps last week, the winemaker for Swanson Vineyards, we tasted our way through three different Alexis Cabernets – all in magnums.
I liked them all. Here is an excerpt from my upcoming column: “We started with the 04, and I found it had pleasant black fruits in both the aroma and taste, very dry, with a lovely length. Chris obviously brought his Bordeaux style to Swanson with the 10% Merlot he blended into his Alexis Cabernet.”
To read more about my dinner with Chris, see The West Ranch Beacon on Friday December 3.
Chris then told me that until November 30, Swanson will offer complimentary shipping with an order of three magnums for Eve Wine 101 readers.
