Rating
 Wine Spectator 93 points
Intense and concentrated, with a rich array of dark berry built around currant, blackberry, mineral, cedar and spice. Most impressive on the finish, where the flavors push through in style. Best from 2014 through 2028.óJ.L
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon flows across the palate with dark berries, espresso, mocha, 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 and is the first vintage made with the consulting services of Paul Hobbs. This is a terrific showing from Merus. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
Bright, saturated ruby-red. Deep aromas of blackberry, black raspberry, cola, chocolate, minerals and spicy oak. Dense, concentrated and sweet, with an almost confectionery quality to the chocolatey dark fruit flavors. A strong spine of tannins gives this very rich cabernet plenty of support. Finishes with powerful fruit and palate-staining length. I would probably opt to enjoy this wine over the next seven or eight years, for its youthful fruit.
