1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For dry rub, in a small bowl combine salt, mustard, espresso powder, pepper, garlic, onion powder, thyme, oregano, coriander, and celery seeds. Set aside.
2. Rub oil over roast. Sprinkle the dry rub evenly over roast; rub in with your fingers. Using a sharp knife, make six 1 x 1/2-inch slits into the fat side of the roast (the slits allow the seasoning to penetrate into the meat).
3. Place roast, fat side up, in a large roasting pan. Insert an oven-going meat thermometer into center of roast. Thermometer should not touch bones. Roast for 1 3/4 to 2 1/4 hours or until meat thermometer registers 135 degrees F. for medium-rare doneness or 2 1/4 to 2 3/4 hours or until meat thermometer registers 150 degrees F. for medium doneness.
4. Transfer roast to a cutting board. Cover with foil. Let stand for 15 minutes before carving. Temperature of the meat after standing should be 145 degrees F for medium-rare doneness or 160 degrees F for medium doneness. Slice and serve with Merlot Au Jus and/or Horseradish Cream.
1. After removing roast from roasting pan, pour drippings into large glass measuring cup. Skim off fat; discard. Add beef broth, Merlot wine, Worcestershire sauce to drippings. Pour mixture back into pan. Heat and stir over medium heat until bubbly, scraping up crusty brown bits from bottom of the pan. If desired, for a thicker au jus, stir together water and cornstarch. Whisk into bubbling broth mixture. If desired, strain au jus before serving.
