2018 is our 20th 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 337 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 2018 Red Blend Mernet Reserve, Keenan's Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon is a bold, dense wine. Soaring aromatics and silky tannins render it approachable even young. Inky red/purplish fruit, mocha and sweet spice build over time. There is a bit of new oak coming through today, but a few years in bottle should help that integrate.” Antonio Galloni
