THE MERCHANT'S MARK
97 / 100
Richly textured blackberry and blueberry fruit. Creme de cassis, dark chocolate notes and mild oak on entry. The mid-palate features black currant and plum along with toasted timber. The layers seem to last for minutes. Nicely structured, it showcases a silky mouthfeel, sweet tannins and a lovely, melt-in-your-mouth hint of toasted brioche. A captivating Cabernet!
THE WINE ADVOCATE
95+ / 100
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Mercury Head opens with gorgeous crushed black currants, blackberries and warm plums with suggestions of lavender, camphor, dark chocolate and pencil lead with a waft of smoked meats. Full-bodied, firmly structured and densely packed, it fills the mouth with vibrant, multilayered black fruits and savory notions, finishing long and perfumed."
