Pre-blends for the 2011 Merus were assembled in September of 2012. In spring of 2013, another rigorous barrel selection was performed which winnowed the total down to 25 barrels. At this stage, the wine was very backward in its development and needed the inclusion of some of the other varieties and an aerated racking to wake it up. While the racking brought the wine closer to its final desired balance, we decided to hold the wine over the next harvest to give it a bit more time in barrel. (�This is often required of very cool vintage wines). Prior to its bottling in February of 2014, it was given a modest egg-white fining to round out the finish, and it was bottled unfiltered. Th�e resulting wine is loaded with true varietal flavors and extract and shows the vintage in the best possible way. Because of careful selection in the vineyard and cellar over several years, the 2011 Merus has a fruit purity uncommon for the vintage. �The deep red-purple color gives the hint of what follows in the nose and mouth.
