Orin Swift Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
A deep hue of dark garnet is almost opaque. The weight of the wine is evidenced in the long and rich legs that coat the sides of the glass. Aromatics of ripe cherry and gooseberry mingle with the scent of newly toasted oak and freshly baked croissants. The entry of the wine is both soft and massive all at once. It coats the mouth and leads into a mid palate laced with fine layers of deeply ripe stone fruits. The wine finishes with long chains of subtle tannins and sophisticated structure.
Exhibits a candied apple flavor, with lots of red and dark berry, black licorice, savory herb and baking spice notes, ending with grippy tannins. Drink now. 5,800 cases made.
