Orin Swift Mercury Head Napa Valley 2018

Dark violet with a ruby crown, the wine exhibits classic Napa Cabernet aromatics with our style: black fruits—plum and cherry—dark chocolate, leather and Rutherford Dust coalesce from the glass. The entry is elegant and begins to flood the palate with notes of cassis, blackberry, blueberry, caramel and a touch of brown sugar and cinnamon: rich and bold. Seamless and focused, the wine closes with lingering dusty tannins and a touch of baking chocolate.

Orin Swift Mercury Head Napa Valley 2018

A tapestry of our best Cabernet Sauvignon lots from the Napa Valley, Mercury
Head entices with a bold wine worthy of the storied histories of each dime. 2016
was a welcome year after the difficult 2015 vintage—a longer growing season and
slightly under average yields let to a consistent concentration of flavors. Sourced
from premier vineyards such as the Stagecoach Vineyard on Atlas Peak, the Morisoli
Vineyard in Rutherford, the Taplin Vineyard in St. Helena and select sites in
Oakville and Calistoga, this vintage of Mercury Head is a stellar representation of
the great growing conditions of 2016 for Cabernet Sauvignon. While over in
Sonoma, we were also able to incorporate a small portion of high quality Cabernet
Sauvignon from the Monte Rosso Vineyard into the blend—contributing additional
complexity to the resulting wine.

WINEMAKING NOTES
The wine is introduced with rich primary a romatics of cassis, blueberry and black
cherry, complemented with hints of lavender, chaparral and sandalwood. The entry is
brawny with ripe blackberry and boysenberry that transitions to a nuanced midpalate of dark toffee and espresso bean. Integrated tannins that will soften over time
lead a finish of soft rhubarb and licorice.
