Merryvale's top-of-the-line Proprietary Red now available. Limited. 95+ Points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc aged 26 months in new oak, the flagship Merryvale 2015 Profile is brilliant, and has slightly more concentration and richness than the 2014. Blackcurrants, burning embers/scorched earth, licorice, and hints of violets all flow to a full-bodied, concentrated, backward, tight Cabernet that needs to be forgotten for 4-5 years. It's going to have two decades or more of longevity." 93 Points Robert Parker: "A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc from the Profile Estate vineyard and aged 26 months in 80% new French oak, the 2015 Merryvale Cabernet Sauvignon Profile is deep garnet-purple in color and shows notes of baked plums, blackberry preserves and dried mulberries with touches of incense, iron ore, tobacco and new leather. The palate is medium to full-bodied and packed with loads of red and black fruit layers, framed by firm, grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and earthy. 1,800 cases produced."
