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. 92+

In a disjointed stage now and in need of patience. 92+ points

Very silky and elegant on the palate with not a rough edge anywhere. The wine has a long luscious finish that lingers pleasantly for well over a minute. This is a blockbuster wine that is not heavy or over-extracted. Very well balanced and an absolute delight to drink.
