Merryvale Profile Napa Valley Red 2004

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Merryvale's flagship Bordeaux Blend, Profile is produced only from the best grapes from the Merryvale Estate Vineyard (St. Helena Appellation), the Beckstoffer – ToKalon Vineyard, Georges III and Vineyard X. This 2004 is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 7% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 94 points and said "Merryvale’s Profile remains a star year after year. The ’04 is nearly all Cabernet Sauvignon, and stuns with its power. With a smooth, complex tannin structure, it’s rich in currants, blackberries and cedar, but is too young to open now. Should hit its stride around 2010 and continue to develop for some years after. Tasted twice, with consistent results." Limited!! View the complete Merryvale 2004 Profile, Napa Valley Red review in Wine Enthusiast Magazine's Buying Guide
