Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2001 Vintage)

Fabulously rich, velvety, and concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon from one of Napa's premier wineries! Napa Valley provided ideal conditions for Merryvale's red varietals, yielding exceptional concentration and complexity. This wine is richly textured, loaded with dark berry flavors and a very supple, silky tannin structure.

91 Points, Wine Enthusiast:

"A beautiful Cab, soft and luscious, with nuances that keep you coming back. Blackcurrant, cassis, coffee, green olive and smoky oak flavors are wrapped in easy tannins that finish smooth and gentle. Delicious. Drink now. S.H." (2/1/2005)

    (From 2005 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Supple, ripe tannins, with ample chunky fruit. A bit raw at the moment, but has good acidity and welcome vigour.
