Powerful, dark, meaty, fruit-saturated, syrupy, mouthful of a wine. The 100% new French oak aging provides structure and subtle vanilla hints on the finish.

Winemaker Notes
Vintage 2016 gave us yet another beautiful vintage in the Napa Valley. This following the fabulous vintages of 2012-2015. Marked by a few late-season heat spells, the wines are as opulent as the 2012's, with the concentration of the 2014s. Rather than crushing and fermenting at 95+ degrees with commercial yeast strains to maximize extraction, Merus is fermented with primarily whole berries at 75 degrees using 100% indigenous yeast. Cooler whole berry fermentations retain more esters specific to the variety and vineyard and allow the yeast to remain viable to absolute dryness.
