Orin Swift Mercury Head Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

$134

An alluring hue of dark garnet sits in the glass, encircled by a glowing ruby rim. Immediate aromas of ripe black cherry, blueberry and classic cassis are supported by undertones of lavender, jasmine, sage, tobacco, cigar box and the slightest touch of anise. Rich and vibrant upon entry, flavors of dark plums, figs and black fruit transform into sweet vanilla and dark chocolate framed by velvety and plush tannins. The wine finishes with great length and a touch of acidity-an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon from select vineyards in the Napa Valley.

A Mercury Dime graces the label. Intense concentrated ripe black berry fruit aromas with smoky notes. On the palate blackberry and currents on the edge of sweetness, with tobacco and cacao tones wrapped in fine smooth tannins. Lingering with a little heat ending with a dried cherry fruit character and mineral tones. Another nice offering from Orin Swift!

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

Leather and oak nose. Purple, bold, dry, mild tannins. Plums with chocolate and coffee beans. Over 2 years since my last bottle, aging very well.

I think this is good, probably if you’d asked me a year ago I’d have said it was very good. No doubt solid Cabernet but I find it a bit two dimensional when compared to others at or around the same price point. Good fruit, oak, vanilla and smoke on the palate, nose is ripe but perhaps a little subdued. There’s a nice balance to this wine but it lacks a deeper complexity and subtlety. Enjoy on day one as by day two the high alcohol has taken over and eaten into the wines flavours.
