100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon

The weather in 2009 was mild and dry until a deluge of rain hit in October. Fortunately, our Cabernet clusters were loosely packed and once the rain cleared, we were able to harvest clean, dry fruit under sunny skies. Vibrant and focused, our 2009 delivers layers of black licorice, brown tobacco, black and red fruits, cassis and minerals. A thick texture and intense fruit core help balance the wine’s ample tannins. The wine is perfect for drinking now and will continue to age beautifully for at least another decade.

92 Points - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

“The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon flows across the palate with dark berries, espresso, momcha, grilled herbs and sweet spices, all of which come together in a soft, sumptuous style that is very appealing. Ripe, silky tannins typical of the vintage support the fruit all the way through to the long, generous finish. The 2009 spent 18 months in French oak barrels. This is a terrific showing from Merus. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.”
