Orin Swift Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Aged 18 months in 53% new French oak, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Mercury Head delivers expressive notes of blackcurrant pastilles, preserved plums and chocolate-covered cherries with hints of eucalyptus, cigar box and fragrant earth. Full-bodied with a firm frame of ripe, grainy tannins and a refreshing line, it has a fantastic core of expressive fruit, finishing long and minty.
Features 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.
