Cork disintegrated trying to open. Right after opening, perfumed nose of ripe cherries and slight brown around the edges. Healthy tannins and fruit forward. Not as full-bodied as the 2004 and 05 Merus, but still delicious.

Delightful jam, some licorice, dried cherries, sundried tomato, black olives, and hazelnut on the nose. Light for a cab, with good tannin structure and some dryness.

If you love big, bold, cabs - and we do - this fits the bill. Lush and silky.

Still a huge fruit bomb. High alc. if you are looking for this style of Napa CabSav but with age go no further.
