Orin Swift Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Mercury Head 2007
Wine Tasting Notes The wine opens with bright aromas of violet ripe boysenberry and cassis. The entry is enormous with layers of blackberry, red raspberry, and Asian plum. The mid-palate is soft and layered with rich texture and structured acid that leads to a long and lingering finish.
Most serious wine drinkers out there have that one bottle that got them serious and this was definatly mine. Perfect smooth entry, lots of dark fruits, and amazing lingering finish. When you have a special occasion this is the wine to get.
Three and a half glasses

The color of the wine is deep garnet with an opaque red tinge. It has aromas of opulent black fruits (cassis, blackberries, black cherries) and a touch of well-integrated, sweet oak. The entry of the wine is soft and lush; it sets up the wide yet well defined mid palate. Dark fruit flavors combined with ripe tannins lead into a long and soft finish.
Notes: Aged 20 months French oak, 33% new Bottled August 2009 15.1% Alc./Vol.
