Muted nose. This wine is very easy to drink. Black plum, blackberries, blueberries, dark raspberries, easy minerals, rich dark earth, violets, black cherry licorice. There's a Grenache feel is this wine. Tannins round and evolved. It soft, elegant and round on the finish but there's something missing on the finish for now.

Tight. Double decant. Should get (a lot?) better.

I rated Merus 8.8. There were over 50 wines at a fundraiser event for Aloha Bowl at Waialae Country Club last week. Merus was one of the better wines that evening and I would recommend to all cab lovers.
