Vineyard Notes

2016 Keenan Mernet, Reserve, Spring Mountain District

2016 is our 18th consecutive vintage of "Mernet" (mare-nay) our proprietary marriage of Merlot and Cabernet. This year the blend is 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 7 both varieties grown in our “Upper Bowl” 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.

”Another of the highlights in this range, the 2016 Red Blend Mernet Reserve is wonderfully dense and fleshy in the glass. Succulent red cherry and pomegranate fruit fill out as this succulent, racy blend shows off its alluring personality. The Mernet is impeccable in its balance.”—Antonio Galloni

“Blended of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Mernet Reserve is scented of baked plums, blueberries, black cherries, earth and tobacco with pepper and herbs hints. The medium to full-bodied palate is very firm, chewy and muscular, finishing earthy.”
