2013 MARK HEROLD WINES CABERNET SAUVIGNON UPROAR NAPA VALLEY 1.5L
Dark as a moonless night and ripe as a fruit vendor's cart! A purplish black hue holds your eye before convincing it to let go and let your nose have at it. Intriguing notes of scorched cherry, brambly blackberry and ripe plum are framed by nuances of earth and spice. Sun-baked rocks, espresso and sweet tobacco leaf play against a backdrop of black cardamom and dried orange peel. A sweet yet savory mid-palate sings with extraction and flavor. Is there a seamless finish with amazing texture and balance? . . . Yes - but you knew that already, didn't you? Enjoy over the next 10-15 years. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
