Winemaker Notes

The first thing you notice about this wine is its color: an inky glass staining opaque purple/black. Next you notice are explosive aromatics of perfectly ripe exotic mountain berries and black strawberries followed by otherworldly fragrances of lychees, roasted blueberries and pit-roasted meats. Further complementing the olfactory spectrum are ethereal notes of sandalwood, graphite and chocolate. A wine that almost overwhelms the senses, it delivers a powerful yet seamless entry that yields to a rich assortment of ripe berry and stone fruits. A powerhouse of a wine with concentrated jammy flavors and perfectly balanced velvety tannins is at once exotically sexy and intense. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Enjoy the 2012 HEROLD by Mark Herold over the next 15 plus years.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon White Herold by Mark Herold is a selection of the richest and most complex and complete barrels, using primarily Darnajou and Taransaud. This wine shows real high-quality, chocolaty, espresso and toasty notes, along with enormous quantities of blackberry and blueberry fruit. It is spicy, super-rich and opulent with 2012's voluptuous, multi-layered texture well displayed. Quite pure and very much in Mark Herold’s bigger-than-life style of Cabernet. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

Mark Herold’s fascination with wine started in his childhood home in Panama City. On his twelfth birthday he liberated a bottle of Port from his father's cellar. Undeterred from the horrendous hangover that followed the next morning, he set about to learn as much as he could about wine. After completing his academic career at the University of Davis with a Ph.D. in Ecology with an emphasis in nutritional biochemistry, he started his first foray into the wine world at Joseph Phelps Vineyards as the Research Enologist. Here Mark was able to bridge the scientific method with winemaking to determine the best approach to making the best expression of wine quality and seamless oak integration.

Merus was a labor of love that Mark started in 1998—a Cult Cabernet Sauvignon that he made in his garage in downtown Napa. His first vintage was extremely challenging weather wise as well as having limited access to equipment. Aside from all the challenges the 1998 Merus received 93 points from Robert Parker. Mark started his consulting business soon after with a client list that has included Hestan, Kamen, Harris, Buccella, Kobalt, Celani Family Vineyards, Maze and The Vineyardist. Mark is a Taurus and his favorite food is Sushi.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all products

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
