Made by Winemaker Mark Herold, Ph.D, founder of Merus, and winemaker or consultant for: Buccella, Celani Family Vineyards, Harris Estate, Hestan Vineyards, Kamen and Kobalt. Says Robert M. Parker, Jr. 'These cuvées admirably showcase Herold’s winemaking philosophy as well as skills. It’s a philosophy built on patience as well as labor. Herold’s success with such new projects as Bucella, Hestan Vineyards, Harris Estate, and Kamen is further evidence that the man knows what to do in the vineyard and the winery.'

The lower yields in 2015 provided great depth of flavor and concentration for Kobalt Cabernet. This wine starts out with an intense, beautiful dark ruby color and aromas of black cherry, boysenberry and spicy red plum. It is another example of an exceptional year from the Napa Valley. Rich, ripe and full-bodied on the palate with overtones of blueberries and cassis. The wine is showing well for a youngster with ripe tannins and hints of blackberry, mocha, chocolate and wisps of tobacco and vanilla on the finish.

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is profoundly scented of black cherries, warm blackberries, black plums and licorice with touches of cedar chest, Indian spices and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, rich, opulent and full-on seductive with its plush tannins, layered ripe fruits and exotic spices, it finishes long and perfumed.
