2012 Mercer Estates Horse Heaven Hills Cavalie Reserve – 52% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon 17% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot ~$42
This is why there is more than one wine. Not everyone in our tasting group loved this but it was the fave or at least in the running for most. The bottle is no longer here so someone liked it well enough to offer it a new home.
Our tasters found a mix of red fruit, black olive, “serious cinnamon”, “deep cherry”, black pepper, and some savory, umami, meaty notes. Most loved the nose and found it to be bright and balanced.
