Merryvale Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
Dark purple in color with generous aromas of currants, blackberry, licorice, chocolate, black olive, espresso and vanilla. The wine is round and full on the palate with forward fruit and great structure from the balanced acid and tannins. Decant this wine in its youth and enjoy for the next 10+ years. - See more at: http://www.merryvale.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=winedetails.displaywinetype&wineTypeID=39#sthash.OIpNCXTd.dpuf
The nose showed black currant, a dusting of dark chocolate, lavender and a bit of butter cookie. On the palate, I found it to be a bit sweet with flavors of black cherry, plum sauce and clove. It's body was velvety and full with a slight coating of fine tannin, which was left behind after each sip. The finish fell a bit short, yet showed ripe berries, which turned a bit sour with time. For the money, this is a highly enjoyable bottle of Cabernet.
Smooth, light and enjoyable. Justin had rehearsal dinner here
Ready to drink now, crimson colored. Mature. Supple, black-berries, dusty.
External Reviews for Merryvale Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Color: dark red with good density. Aroma: sweet red and black currants, brambly blackberry jam, black olive, dried herbs and violets. Taste: soft entry, round with medium weight, toasty oak notes, and very good length
Supple aromas of concentrated blackberry and cassis echo on the palate showing the fruit's fine Napa Valley breeding and structure. Try with roast duck and turkey or barbeque.
CELLARING Enjoyable now but will gain complexity with 5-10 years aging. WINEMAKER'S NOTES This wine is made from lots selected for their complexity of flavors and supple tannins. The blend includes Merlot to help tame tannins, Petit Verdot for

Robert Parker calls it an excellent value - which packs a lot of flavor and intensity for its price. This dense ruby/purple-colored Cabernet reveals plenty of cassis, cedar, licorice and spice notes. It is a delicious, medium-bodied wine with supple tannins and a long finish.
Inky purple, almost black. Base notes of blackberry liqueur seasoned with mocha, roasted coffee and black olive permeate the nose. The palate also displays the black fruit theme with olive and black licorice, followed by mineral and tar on the finish... Neil Mechanic. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2007 Merryvale Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
Winemaker's Notes - Voluptuous aromas of cassis, black cherry, vanilla bean and cedar leap out of the glass.
