95 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 3 percent Malbec, and 2 percent Petit Verdot.
A bit of a diamond in the rough, it is only beginning to show all that it has to offer—intense aromas of black cherries, layered with exotic spice, and tremendous intensity in the mouth, with dark dense fruit flavors and abundant velvety tannins. A few more years in the bottle will bring the 2006 Merus to its full, luscious potential.

92 Points - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
“…enormous power and richness. It is a massive, blockbuster-style effort possessing black fruits, plenty of spicy oak, hints of licorice and graphite, and mouth-staining tannins and extract in the finish.”
91 Points - Jim Laube, The Wine Spectator
“Intense and rustic, with chewy mineral, anise, dried currant and earth notes. Full-bodied, this is concentrated and long on the finish, but needs time to soften. Best from 2011 through 2017.”
