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.

I was blown away by this wine! Very well rounded wine that can be enjoyed in its own or paired with a steak. On the nose, cocoa, green bell pepper, cherry, spice, and strawberry. On the palate bright cranberry, cherry, strawberry, cinnamon, tobacco, leather, and a oak finish.
