2003 Merus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1040656 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon (97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Malbec and Petit Verdot) boasts an inky/purple color along with a rich bouquet of creosote, blueberries, blackberries, sweet earth, and smoky, spicy oak. With full body, abundant fruit, glycerin, and sweet tannin, a multilayered mouthfeel, and stunning upside potential, it is accessible enough to be drunk in 2-3 years, or cellared for two decades. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2005)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, black cherry, sweet butter and loam. Sweet, lush and sappy, with black cherry and graphite flavors offering very good definition and lift. Offers compelling sweetness and an almost liqueur-like ripeness, but this is more than simply a fruit bomb. Finishes with substantial ripe, broad tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2006)

92 points Wine Spectator
