Big, black , dark fruits dominate the palate while sophisticated undertones of graphite, gamey meats and baking spices are noticeable by not as well represented as the fruit. The wine carries power and flavor but the mouthfeel is almost subdued comparably. I nice wine for the steak dinner and a pleasant surprise as our palates had the pleasure of a crescendo, landing in bold Cabernet after laps with cocktails and bubbles.

The cellar room at a Merus. The 13 had big dark fruit and sage nose. Ripe blackberry juice, creamed blackberries, black cherries, black cherry licorice, anise, dark dry powdery earth, crushed rocks, edgy mineral powder and nice acidity. Round polished elegant finish that takes an hour in the decanter to reveal.
