Normally not a huge Cab fan but this one was so smooth after decanting. Amazing.

Maybe it's the ambiance but this is much better than expected.

Wow! A Dave Phinney special! Dark cherry and blackberry fruit aromas and flavors. Hints of tobacco, earth and a little bit of vanilla. Lighter on body, so it took a bit of chilling. (Great on a hot day!). Beautifully balanced and smooth (Very “Merlot-like” but with all the characteristics of Cab Sauv). Brilliantly constructed. Amazing wine!

2014. Decanted 5 hours before drinking and could have used an additional 5. Still an excellent beverage only paled by its 2013 older bro a bit smoother.

Orin Swift 2014 Mercury Head cabernet sauvignon is fantastic ! At just over 100 dollars a bottle it better be. It has a bouquet of Sangria. The initial palate is blackberry and spice. Just what I love. There is also hints of cedar and tobacco. There is definitely chocolate and butter on the tongue. The finish comes late with a slight tangy pinch on the front of the tongue. It leaves me thirsting for more. To break it down: Spice- 5 on initial palate Buttery- 9 mid palate Fruit- 6 mid palate Oak- 7 on finish Dry- 9 on finish
