An alluring hue of dark garnet sits in the glass, encircled by a glowing ruby rim. Immediate aromas of ripe black cherry, blueberry and classic cassis are supported by undertones of lavender, jasmine, sage, tobacco, cigar box and the slightest touch of anise. Rich and vibrant upon entry, flavors of dark plums, figs and black fruit transform into sweet vanilla and dark chocolate framed by velvety and plush tannins. The wine finishes with great length and a touch of acidity-an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon from select vineyards in the Napa Valley.

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Mercury Head opens with gorgeous crushed black currants, blackberries and warm plums with suggestions of lavender, camphor, dark chocolate and pencil lead with a waft of smoked meats. Full-bodied, firmly structured and densely packed, it fills the mouth with vibrant, multilayered black fruits and savory notions, finishing long and perfumed. 6,650 cases produced.

Decanter" An extremely intense, very ripe and sweet style with a spirity nose and multilayered, candied fruit and dark chocolate palate. Finishes with mature/dried fruit notes and alcohol heat. "

Wine SpectatorSmooth-textured, with layers of flavor centered on dark berry, mocha, crushed rock and cedary wood, firming nicely on the finish, where the tannins add backbone and traction. Drink now through 2028. 6,650 cases made.
