Orin Swift Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Brand: Orin Swift Cellars
Orin Swift Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon
Lush yet tightly structured, the Orin Swift Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 vintage is an incredible example of a small appellation California Cabernet. Tartly sweet blueberry flavors and hints of green pepper blend with aromas of bittersweet chocolate. Heavy tannins give structure to the wine. Ideal with a grilled filet mignon.
The wine opens with a nose brimming of ripe boysenberry and cassis, complemented by hints of cigar box, fir and graphite. Full-bodied on entry, the luscious palate is full of ripe cherry and a touch of blackberry with elegant traces of sage. It closes with a satiating finish that is long and textured, supported by ample red berries and soft, dusty tannins.
