Mercury Rising is the proprietary name
of Cinnabar's rich Bordeaux-style red
wine. Vineyards are chosen for their
exceptional climate, soil and ability to express true varietal character.
In 2003, sources in the Santa Cruz
Mountains, Sonoma and Paso Robles
contributed cabernet sauvignon, merlot,
cabernet franc and petite verdot. Lots were fermented separately and then blended, creating a wine of great depth and complexity.
Blueberry and black cherry fragrances
lead to spicy black fruit flavors with notes
of toasted oak and vanilla. A large midpalate with great ageability. Serve with grilled lamb chops, Cajun-seasoned
swordfish or a spicy marinara.
