We sat down 8 years ago with a guy from Mercer State and asked him: which one of your wines would you recommend for aging 5 years or so? He recommended the Mercer Cabernet Sauvignon 2007. And boy, he was right.
This wine is a red blend with 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. This wine was already pretty good in 2008. However, you might have said it could have used a little be more of “personality.” 8 years later, this wine is in its prime.
If you are looking for a dry and bold Cab, the Mercer Sauvignon 2007 might be one you want to try. It pairs very well with red meats. If you are looking for a recommendation, try it together with a braised pork belly or lamb shoulder.
Our Winetification score is based out of 2 guests. The consensus was that they would definitely purchase a bottle for themselves. However, be aware, this wine might be challenging to find either online or locally. Nevertheless, if you can find it, we highly recommend it. We are looking forward to trying another vintage from Mercer State’s Sauvignon in the future.
