Mark started his first venture into the wine world at Joseph Phelps Vineyards as the Research Enologist. Here Mark was able to bridge the scientific method with practices in winemaking in order to determine which procedures really make the best expressions of wine quality and seamless oak integration.  Mark’s enthusiasm for making wine took on a life of its own leading to the creation of Merus in 1998; his personal Cabernet label.   Being made in his home garage in downtown Napa, this project was a labor of love.  After selling Merus, Mark continues his quest for making delicious, balanced, age-worthy wines.


With the Collide he has created a brooding and serious wine with powerful aromas of the blackest blackberries, dusty plums, ripe blueberries, sun baked rocks, dried wildflowers, pencil lead and licorice with hints of black cardamom, smoldering cherry wood and brown sugar.  The palate is all at once chewy, plush and savory; delivering loads of black fruit flavors.  Rich, ripe fruit flavors of Blueberry compote and rhubarb-strawberry pie dual against an earthen backdrop of crushed rock, truffle and forest floor. Powerfully built with 30% Carignane, 27% Petit Sirah, 24% Tempernillo and 19% Graciano.  The tannins are firm and the finish is memorable.  A non-traditional blend that is a Cabernet lover’s dream! This immediately enjoyable wine will cellar very well over the next 15 years.
