Merus Winery Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep medium ruby. Sexy nose of roasted black raspberry, cassis, root beer, meat and spicy, toasty oak. Lush, dense, sweet and powerful; an outsized wine with rich flavors of black fruits and spices. Still, I'd like to have found a bit more verve and finesse. Decant this wine well in advance if you plan to try it now.
