Patience patience and more patience is mandated by the 2008. A blend of 99% Cabernet Sauvignon .5% Malbec and .5% Petit Verdot reveals an opaque blue/purple color in addition to abundant graphite vanillin blueberry and blackberry aromas. Built for the long haul it is a concentrated dense promising Cabernet along the lines of the great wines made at Merus since its founding by Mark Herold (who is now pursuing other projects). Give it 4-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25-30 years. 93+

Pungent blackberry blueberry minerals licorice bitter chocolate graphite and violet on the nose along with a lot of sweet oak. Dense but juicy in the mouth with a texture like liquid velvet nicely enlivened by excellent harmonious acidity. Very concentrated vibrant flavors of blackberry pepper and exotic oak. Tastes almost sweet and finishes with oak-driven but suave even tannins. Offers a major mouthful of fruit but I'd still give this glossy wine some time to integrate its components. 93+
