Premier Napa Valley Coombsville Lots — Merus: Lot #150

2014 MERUS CABERNET SAUVIGNON —COOMBSVILLE: LOT #150 (10 CASES)

The 10 cases of the 2014 Merus Cabernet Sauvignon up for auction at Premier Napa come from a well situated vineyard in Coombsville where the grapes enjoy a much cooler growing season and hence longer hang time. The wine is dense and nuanced, typical of the Merus style. The wine will age for 24 months in new French oak barrels.

Dave Lattin, who has made wine at Robert Pecota, Acacia and Kuleto, is the winemaker. Lattin employ a slightly more natural approach to making the wine including more native yeast, less acidulation of the must, some cooler fermentations.
