A mini verticals of Merryvale Napa cab. The 2nd one is 12’ Saint Helena.
Complex and Bordeaux like. Blueberries, blackberries, cedar, fig, cigar box, five spices, and a bit pencil shavings. Medium to full body. Round fresh acidity. Velvety tannins. Elegant.
I think this is as good as the Profile.

It’s always a joy to taste Merryvale Napa cab, but this limited release St Helena bottling is a cut above, a beautiful display of power and finesse. The deep nose is alluring yet restrained, showcasing ripe plum, blackberries, cedar, dates, graphite, anise, and hint of leather. Full body but not heavy. Plush, warm, and slightly candied mouthfeel, with delicious polished tannins.
From Magnum. Aged in 90% new French oak barrel for 22 months. On par with the Profile bottling for about half of the price.

Coffee on the nose. And leather? Velvety raspberry and cherry! Still some tannins to spare. Opens up into a rich earthy palate.
