Reviews
Robert Parker - 95 See more...
Tasted too late to make it into the December issue, Merus’s 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits an inky/purple color as well as an extraordinary bouquet of blueberry liqueur intermixed with graphite, charcoal, cassis, and spice. The wood seems pushed to the background given the extraordinary concentration of fruit. Full-bodied, powerful, and rich with chocolaty espresso notes intermixed with blackberries and blueberries, this pure, impressively textured, long Cabernet should evolve for two decades.
Wine Spectator - 92 See more...
Ultrarich and concentrated, with tiers of earthy currant, anise, huckleberry, leather, gravel and sage, full-blown and progressively dry and earthy, somewhat offsetting the dense, pure core of Cabernet flavors. Drink now through 2017. 1,200 cases made.
James Suckling - 94 See more...
Very rich aromas of raspberries, licorice and minerals follow through to a full body, with big velvety tannins and a long flavorful finish. Lots going on here. Big in-your-face Napa Cabernet. But polished at the same time. Almost ready to try. 15+23+23+33. Find the wine
Wine Enthusiast - 92 See more...
Made in the modern cult style, this soft, ripely lush Cabernet is immediately likeable for its blackberry-pie filling, black currant liqueur, chocolate, licorice and smoky sweet oak flavors. It's California Cabernet at its heady, opulent best. Drink now.
