According to Robert Parker - A ripe, juicy style, with bright, vivid red cherry, plum and wild berry scents that are pure and polished. Full-bodied, ending with a long, lingering finish. Tempranillo, Grenache, Carignane, Graciano and Petite Sirah. Drink now through 2019.

 

According to International Wine Cellar - Good deep red. Spicy black cherry and blackberry aromas complicated by earth and minerals. Sweet and creamy in the mouth, with an intense blueberry flavor dominating. Very expressive already but finishes with a serious tannic structure. This has terrific fruit. Owner/winemaker Mark Herold told me he recently brought back tempranillo budwood from Peter Sisseck (Pingus) in Ribera del Duero, which he hopes to use in a high-end blend with cabernet sauvignon. Incidentally, when Herold sold out his share of Merus, he signed a non-compete agreement that prevented him from making cabernet sauvignon until the 2010 vintage, so he began by making this tempranillo-based wine and a Chateauneuf blend under the Flux label.14.8% ABV. Rated 90+
