Herold by Mark Herold Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

#HER11RE3 | 750mL

Comprised of Cabernet from Oakville and Coombsville, this newly released Cab from Mark Herold reveals black and blue fruit intermixed with dark chocolate and graphite. At a recent lunch with Mark, I was given a quick lesson by him onoak barrels. he explained why he relies on two specific French barrel cooperage houses - Darnajou and Taransaud. Darnajou barrels are aged for 18 months and Taransaud barrels for 36 months. Each barrel lends different nuances to the wine. While showing well out of the bottle, I would suggest decanting for an hour or two or cellaring if you have the patience. 150 cases were produced. -Kerrin Laz, Wine Director
