Merus 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Merus 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Merus 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

The 2016 Merus is a powerful, dark, meaty, fruit-saturated, syrupy, mouthful of a wine. Since it is bone-dry and fermented at moderate temperatures, this is an absolute reflection of the strength of the vineyard, the beauty of whole berry fermentation, and the synergies that can occur between wine and wood. The 100% new French oak aging provides structure and subtle vanilla hints on the finish. Decant for at least one hour in advance for maximum enjoyment.

Wine Spectator - 96 Points
"A towering young wine, laden with gorgeously pure plum, boysenberry and blackberry puree flavors, showing flashes of violet and apple wood. Beautifully rendered, with power, grace and beguiling perfume throughout, revealing a long, refined structure through the finish. Best from 2021 through 2035."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 95 Points
"Deep purple-black in color, the barrel sample of 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon gives up notes of black raspberries, kirsch and roses over a core of cassis and warm blackberries plus hints of pencil lead, bay leaves and menthol. Full-bodied with a well-played frame of approachable, chewy tannins, it has plenty of black and red fruit layers with a savory finish."
