2004 Merus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1040657 96 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This boutique blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec is a broodingly backward, formidably endowed, full throttle, pedal-to-the-metal style of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2004’s 15.5% alcohol is well-concealed by the wine’s wealth of fruit and glycerin. This full-bodied beauty is black as a moonless night. It exhibits abundant notes of plums, blackberries and creme de cassis as well as nicely integrated wood, acidity and tannin. It will offer an impeccable well-made, stunningly rich, complex, two-fisted glass of Cabernet Sauvignon over the next 15+ years. (RP) 96+ Inner quote mark (4/2014)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A big, rich style that packs a wallop of mocha-laced dark berry, black licorice, dusty wood and loamy earth notes, maintaining a wonderful sense of elegance and finesse. The tannins show no sign of subsiding, so drink now if you want to enjoy the robust fruitiness. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2014)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright saturated ruby. Brooding blackberry and blueberry aromas, with notes of mocha, cola and minerals complemented by a sexy meaty nuance; slightly high-toned in a positive way. Fat, sweet and seamless; very plush wine but not over the top. Rather oaky flavors of black raspberry, mocha, oak spices, toffee and minerals. Not hugely complex but wonderfully rich and layered wine, and evolving slowly. Hedonistic and utterly satisfying. Finishes with serious but well-buffered tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2015)
