$300.00

The 2016 Merus is a powerful, dark, meaty, fruit-saturated, syrupy, mouthful of a wine. Since it is bone-dry and fermented at moderate temperatures, this is an absolute reflection of the strength of the vineyard, the beauty of whole berry fermentation, and the synergies that can occur between wine and wood. The 100% new French oak aging provides structure and subtle vanilla hints on the finish. Decant for at least one hour in advance for maximum enjoyment.

Awards & Accolades

96 Points Wine Spectator - A towering young wine, laden with gorgeously pure plum, boysenberry and blackberry puree flavors, showing flashes of violet and apple wood. Beautifully rendered, with power, grace and beguiling perfume throughout, revealing a long, refined structure through the finish. Best from 2021 through 2035. 1,900 cases made. — JM
