Vineyard Notes

2015 Keenan Mernet, Reserve, Spring Mountain District

2015 is our 17th consecutive vintage of "Mernet" (mare-nay) our proprietary marriage of Merlot and Cabernet. This year the blend is 50% Merlot, all coming from our “Upper Bowl” vineyard, and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 15 from our “Big K” vineyard. The resulting wine is a seamless blend with an emphasis on high-toned sweet delicious rich fruit with an almost hidden depth and structure. Enjoy now or decades from now.

”The 2015 Red Blend Mernet Reserve, equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, is another superb wine from Keenan. Dense and pliant, but with tons of supporting structure, the 2015 is a marvelous wine in every way. A rush of succulent dark cherry, herbs and wild flowers are some of the many notes that fill out the wine's ample, resonant frame. What a gorgeous wine this is.”—Antonio Galloni

“Blended of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Mernet Reserve opens with a meaty/earthy nose and a core of black cherries, red currants and mulberries plus pencil lead and bay leaves suggestions. Rich and concentrated, with firm tannins in the medium to full-bodied mouth, it's packed with fruit and finishes long and earthy.”
