06' Merus Cabernet. Commented on this Cabernet several times in the last few years .This was one of the last year's that Mark made the wine. Pop & pour , let it up in the glass. It's ready to go! Edit- Decanting it for 30 minutes would be best. Prime drinking years now.

06' Merus Cabernet. One hour decanting. I think it's a pop & pour wine. Dark ruby red in color with Violet edges. Big full-bodied Cab. I had this same bottle Labor Day weekend. Nothings really changed. Black licorice, raspberry. A long smooth finish! I don't see this wine getting much better. It still has a few great years in it.

06' Amazing Full- Bodied & ready. Decanted for a short 20 minute period. Black licorice, raspberries. Not the most complexed wine. LONG & smooth finish.I don't think it will get any better...

Magical, with layers of rich flavors and heady aromas of worn leather, cigar box and licorice. Firm chewy tannins and lingering finish. Yum!

A total turnaround!! I tried this wine four years ago and it was still un-drinkable. Beautiful!
