Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 92+

Although closed at present, Merus' inky/purple-colored 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon displays enormous power and richness. It is a massive, blockbuster-styled effort possessing black fruits, plenty of spicy oak, hints of licorice and graphite, and mouth-staining tannins and extract in the finish. Forget it for 4-5 years, and drink it over the following 20-25.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92(+?)

($135; blended with 3% malbec and 2% petit verdot) Saturated ruby. Dusty black raspberry, blackberry, spices and licorice pastille on the nose, with hints of meat, dark chocolate and eucalyptus. Less sweet and harmonious than the young 2007 sample, showing a rather tightly wound quality and a medicinal aspect to its dark fruit flavors. Finishes with serious, even somewhat tough tannins. In a disjointed stage now and in need of patience.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

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.

dark purple color. needs time to open, but this is a powerhouse that remains under control. the blend of some malbec with the touch of petit verdot deepen and soften the dominant cab fruit into as perfect balance of finesse and power and the finish is marvelous. will drink fine for years to come.
