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.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Herold by Mark Herold, which is his $195.00 bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon (340 cases), is super-duper rich. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and tipping the scales at a lofty 15.3% natural alcohol, the wine shows loads of blackberry fruit, graphite, licorice, forest floor and white flowers. There are baking spice notes, plenty of toasty oak and a full-bodied, powerful, super-concentrated mouthfeel. Herold said his fruit sources for this wine are Stagecoach, Atlas Peak and Coombsville vineyards. This wine should drink well for 15-20 years.
