Notes from the Winemaker :
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.


Ratings & Reviews


94 Points - Vinous:
"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 - (Mar 2018)

93+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"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." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (31st Oct 2017)

92 Points - James Suckling:
"Ripe plums, morello cherries, underbrush, cedar, mahogany and blackberry essence. Full-bodied with a lovely structure of firm, chewy tannins, bright acidity and a fruit-forward finish. A blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon. Better in 2021." - (23 May, 2018)
