The Merus Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 is an artful and complex red wine, with beautifully powerful flavors and aromas. The wine is deep purple-black in the glass, and the first emerging aromas are of blackberry, tarry smoke, crushed violet, and charred beef fat. Following these initial impressions, more demure aromas emerge. Black currant, sweet bramble vine, and cool wet stone represent the cool Coombsville site where the grapes were grown. The mouth is thick and sweet, yet not heavy. 100% new oak provides structure and toastiness. This excellent wine will continue to mature with more time in the bottle.
