Merus Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Winemaker Camille Benitah and consulting winemaker Paul Hobbs have done a fabulous job with the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. Rich, deep and sumptuous, the 2010 is incredibly inviting. Sweet dark cherries, mocha, flowers and espresso meld together as the 2010 opens up in the glass. A soft, plush finish rounds things out in style. The Merus Cabernet Sauvignon is overt, juicy and beautifully balanced from start to finish. One of the virtues of the 2010 is that it should drink fabulously pretty much upon release. The blend is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.
Focused on a trim, firm, rich mix of dark berry, black licorice, dusty, loamy earth and fresh-cut herbs, this finishes with a tapered aftertaste and cedary tannins. Best from 2014 through 2024. 521 cases made.
