Every Mark Herold wine I have ever had was a winner. Even in off vintages. Not sure I would be a buyer when Merus is readily available for $100-$120 and is affrigginmazing.
I also recently had the 2003 Kobalt....a real stunner in an off vintage and surely a high end QPR. Worth the search.
If you want to experience a fantastic Herrold wine seek out any Harris Estate you can find. Decant for 5 hours and stand back. $75-$110 per.
