Product description

As a child, the winemaker loved and collected the Liberty dime nicknamed the "Mercury Head" which now fittingly graces his flagship wine's bottle.

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Deep garnet-purple coloured, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Mercury Head (aged for 15 months in oak, 51% new) delivers classic notes of warm cassis, plum preserves and mulberries with hints of cigar box, dried bay leaves, pencil lead and truffles. The full-bodied, densely packed, full-throttle palate has a solid structure of firm tannins and oodles for freshness supporting the muscular black fruits, finishing long and savoury. 

93 Points - Wine Spectator

Alluring, featuring blackberry, blueberry and açaí berry aromas and flavours, laced with graphite and violet notes and backed by a hint of lavender. Very expressive, showing lovely range, as well as the stuffing and structure to cellar. Approachable, but a little time is warranted. Best from 2021 through 2030.
