Merus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2005, 750mL (WA96, WS96) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Merus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

750mL

Vintage: 2005
Region: US
Appellation: Napa

WA96, WS96
Rated 96 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `As for their own wines, all of which come from southern Napa sites in Oak Knoll and Coombsville, the 2005 is certainly one of the finest wines they have yet made. A 1,000-case blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec, the wine is dense purple-colored to the rim, with an exquisite nose of charcoal, graphite, and blackberry liqueur. Full-bodied, with great power, richness, and sensational length, this wine will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle-age and last three decades. The husband and wife team of Mark Herold and his graphic designer wife, Erika Gottl, continue to play an increasingly important role in the production of high quality Cabernet Sauvignons from Napa, not only with their home wine, called Merus, but also with their consultancy work for wineries such as Kobalt, Kamen, Hestan, Harris Estate Vineyards, and Ardore. Previously recommended: 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon (94), 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon (95). Tel. (707) 251-5551; Fax (707) 251-3782` -- Tasting note by Robert Parker
