($135) Deep, bright ruby. Explosive nose offers cassis, blueberry, bitter chocolate, violet and minerals. Downright sexy on the palate, with penetrating blackberry, graphite, coffee bean, licorice and violet flavors carrying a full load of sweet oak that gives a slight youthful bitter edge to the long, seriously tannic finish. Not particularly fleshy but conveys an insidious sweetness of fruit. Merus is aged in 100% new oak, with Darnajou and Seguin-Moreau the preferred coopers.

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.

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.

$135. 99% Cabernet. Lots of sediment. Big powerful nose of dark berries, a bit of spice in the background. A big wine, tons of fruit, no tannin so very soft. A bit over the top. Medium length finish.
