"Merryvale's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is quite a bit fresher and more vibrant than the 2009. The tannins are a bit firmer and the wine has a greater sense of overall structure. Cinnamon, plums, black cherries, mint and mocha are some of the many nuances that flesh out on the vibrant, delineated finish. There is a lot to like in this promising, delicious Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2010 is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Petit Verdot.
Range: 90-92 Points"
