91 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 6 percent Merlot, 3 percent Petit Verdot.
Despite a challenging year, the 2000 Merus possesses a refined texture, a long finish, and an abundance of sweet, forward fruit. Delicious on release, it is evolving into an even greater wine over time.

90 Points - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
“Full-bodied and rich, with well-integrated oak, a creamy texture, and real opulence as well as purity with no hard edges…It should be drunk over the next 10-12 years.”
94 Points - Jim Laube, The Wine Spectator
“Tremendous. Ripe, rich, deftly balanced, and deeply concentrated, yet with a wonderful sense of harmony and finesse. The flavors are sharply defined, built around cassis, currant, mocha, and anise, with a long, luxuriant aftertaste.”
