- Orin Swift Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Product #28886 (In Stock)
LIMITED! This is the first release for Mercury Head since the WS 93 point 2009 (in 2010/2011, Dave Phinney used all his Cabernet in Pappillon). From a great harvest, it's 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 16 months in French oak (50% new). Here's Dave Phinney's tasting note: "Saturated ruby red in complexion, the wine exudes elegance, purity and richness. Teeming with profound aromas of black raspberries, currants, cassis, cedar and rose petals, it invites the senses. The entry is lush and pure which provides shape to an ideal symmetry of dark berries, cocoa, plums, and black cherries. The flavors transition into a savory and bright mouthfeel, finishing with absolute elegance and softness."
