Vineyard Notes

2017 Keenan Mernet, Reserve, Spring Mountain District

2017 is our 19th consecutive vintage of "Mernet" (mare-nay) our proprietary marriage of Merlot and Cabernet. This year the blend is 50% Merlot, all coming from our “Mailbox Vineyard”, and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 7 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 2017 Red Blend Mernet Reserve is deep, fleshy and wonderfully seductive, with soft fruit, silky contours and open-knit aromatics - all of which make the 2017 a real pleasure to taste today.” Antonio Galloni
