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.

Wine Advocate" Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Mercury Head opens with gorgeous crushed black currants, blackberries and warm plums with suggestions of lavender, camphor, dark chocolate and pencil lead with a waft of smoked meats. Full-bodied, firmly structured and densely packed, it fills the mouth with vibrant, multilayered black fruits and savory notions, finishing long and perfumed."

Decanter" An extremely intense, very ripe and sweet style with a spirity nose and multilayered, candied fruit and dark chocolate palate. Finishes with mature/dried fruit notes and alcohol heat. "

Wine SpectatorSmooth-textured, with layers of flavor centered on dark berry, mocha, crushed rock and cedary wood, firming nicely on the finish, where the tannins add backbone and traction. Drink now through 2028. 6,650 cases made.
