The level of intensity, color and flavor in the fruit from our Profile Estate Vineyard was truly exceptional. The incredible phenolics in 2013 allowed for deep and long macerations for up to 45 days. Aromas of licorice, blackberry, raspberry and plum are interwoven with dark chocolate and black olives and highlighted by balsamic notes. The rich, round entry is the perfect entrée to this wine of significant depth and length. The weight and concentration are balanced by flavors that are equally deep and elegant with leather notes and savory herbs (thyme) on the finish. The oak is well integrated featuring supple, very fine grain tannins. Decant this wine in its youth, it will reach a nice level of complexity 8-10 years from vintage, and with proper cellaring its depth and very fine tannins will continue to develop over the next 10+ years.

93pts Wine Enthusiast "This vintage of the hearty proprietary blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc highlights the best of the harvest. It’s dense with mouth-coating red fruit and a touch of sweetness from oak. As it unwinds, more developed graphite, black olive and dried herb accents come to life. Enjoy 2023–2030. Cellar Selection"------92pts+ Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "The 2013 Proprietary Red Blend Profile, their Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and usually meant to represent the flagship dry red of the winery, has a dense ruby/purple color, notes of wood char, spice box, blackberry and blueberry, this starts to kick up the level of tannin in this medium to full-bodied, long-term wine. This does require some patience, and 4-5 years is suggested. It should drink nicely for 20 or more years."------ 92pts Wilfred Wong of Wine.com "An excellent effort, the 2013 Merryvale Profile showcases how well the Napa Valley is able to produce Bordeaux-style red blends. This wine compares favorably with efforts from St. Julien and Pauillac. Its black fruit, graphite, and oaky flavors are classic in this category.(Tasted: April 27, 2017, San Francisco, CA)"----- 91pts - Wine Spectator "Rambunctious, delivering savory, underbrush-laced earth and blackberry flavors, unfolding to reveal currant, licorice and floral scents. The tannins emerge on the grippy, grainy aftertaste. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2030."
