2006 Cabernet Sauvignon

Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon is named for the silver mercury head dimes that adorn our bottles. This wine is a blend of our two best Cabernet vineyards. We are blessed to buy Cabernet from a handful of great people who are also great farmers who farm great vineyards. We've learned a lot from these guys, and we're proud to count them as friends; Gary Morisoli (Morisoli Vineyard, Rutherford) and Doug Wight (Taplin/Lewelling Vineyard, Saint Helena). The 2006 Mercury Head is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, entirely from these two vineyard sites and is true to its varietal characteristics.

Tasting Notes

The color is deep dark garnet. It has aromas of wild ripe field berries, figs, dust, earth, cranberry, black cherry, spice, dark coffee, chocolate, leather, violets, and currants. The palate is also dominated by dark brooding fruit, pomegranate, plus a little root beer and licorice. It is solid with a firm chewy mid-palate. The finish is long with smooth, well integrated tannins.

The 2006 Mercury Head was aged in French oak barrels (forty percent new) for sixteen months. This wine is very drinkable now but will benefit from cellaring in the short term and could rest for up to ten years.
