    August 31, 2019 - The Mercury Head is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Taplin and Morisoli vineyard in St. Helena and Rutherford. A relatively small production and mostly on ‘allocation’. Incredibly concentrated and intense with plush dark berries, dark chocolate. Ripe and punchy (also its price tag). The wood frame is noticeably richer and more suave. A step up in body as well as concentration from their other reds. (89-90/100)

    May 26, 2019 - Decanted. Opens to big flavors once it opens. Berry on open and light tannins on the finish.

    April 12, 2019 - CBCC opening dinner. Courtesy of Chris C.

    A very rich, clearly modern styled Cab. Aromatic nose of nothing both crushed berries. Slightly unbalanced mid-palate with much more dominant acidity, and now some plum coming through. Finish is harsh and frankly a little tart.

    December 23, 2018 - Aged in French Oak. Decanted for about 90 minutes. Very good, moderate tannins, excellent fruit. Left Bank style. Easily Dave Phinney’s better efforts. Would buy again. I think another year or two would lead to great things.

    November 24, 2018 - Color of dark red. Scents of ripe raspberry and blackberry. Tastes consistent with scents, much riper and softer than I had expected, less tannic than I would have thought too.
