2012 MARK HEROLD CABERNET SAUVIGNON WHITE LABEL --- $195! RP95
RP95: "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 2012s 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 is known for his full-throttle, massively extracted, rich Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines. But he is also doing an increasingly impressive job with innovative value whites and reds that more California winemakers should be doing – creative assemblages of grapes into a delicious, consumer-friendly wine. Herold, who was a research oenologist at Joseph Phelps Vineyards 1996-2003, has been on his own now for more than a decade. He has recently introduced wines that are all excellent values."
Here is how Mark himself describes the wine! "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."
