2000 'Profile', Napa Valley

Cabernet sauvignon flavors dominate this heady and stylish red, even though it accounts for just over half of the blend... Dark in tone, black as a starry night sky... powerful in its tannic richness... This should age beautifully; or decant it now for a steak.

2000 'Profile', Napa Valley

The shining star of the Merryvale clan, the Profile bottling is big, bold, deeply constituted wine that married lots of concentrated, black currant qualities with a most generous dose of lovely oak. Redolent of sweet cream, coffee, cocoa and caramel,it is kept solidly on course by its unwavering fruit.
