Orin Swift Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The wine is introduced with rich primary aromatics of cassis, blueberry and black cherry, complemented with hints of lavender, chaparral and sandalwood. The entry is brawny with ripe blackberry and boysenberry that transitions to a nuanced mid-palate of dark toffee and espresso bean. Integrated tannins that will soften over time lead a finish of soft rhubarb and licorice.
Wine SpectatorFeatures an ample core of dark currant and mulled boysenberry fruit, inlaid with light mint, sweet tobacco and anise notes. A subtle cedar accent shows on the rich finish. Drink now through 2026. 6,000 cases made.
