Winemaker Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

93pts 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.

This selection from Michael Keen- an’s vineyards near the top of Spring Moun- tain blends merlot and cabernet sauvignon in a powerfully structured red. It needs two days of air for the flavors to clarify, its ini- tial high-toned spice and honeyed perfume turning savory, toward tobacco and resinous herbs, while the earthiness of the tannins lends an austere grace. With its mountain- grown intensity, the wine will benefit from cellar time, or from decanting alongside braised lamb.

92pts 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.
