2008 is our 10th consecutive vintage of "Mernet" (mare-nay), our proprietary marriage of
Merlot and Cabernet. Each blend has been half Merlot and half Cabernet, but no two wines
have had the same vineyard combinations. This year the blend is equally split between the
"Mailbox" Vineyard and the estate Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 337. The resulting wine is a
seamless blend of the two varietals with an emphasis on high-toned sweet, delicious rich fruit
with an almost hidden depth and structure to allow for indefinite aging. Enjoy now or decades
"The 2008 Mernet Reserve is composed of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon.
I've never liked the name that much, but I sure love the wine. Another prodigious effort
from Keenan, it boasts an inky/purple color as well as a sweet nose filled with blackberry,
black currant and cherry fruit intermixed with mocha and chocolate. Full-bodied and rich with
an enticing suppleness as well as admirable length and texture, it should drink well for 15 or
The Wine Advocate
"An estate-grown blend from the reserve merlot block of the Mailbox Vineyard with cabernet sauvignon from Big K, this vintage of Mernet is all minerality, all the time. That, plus red currant richness and cool mountain forest scents of pine and spearmint. It’s the gripping mineral tannins that set this wine clearly on Spring Mountain, the intensity and firmness of the structure they offer the wine. Remarkably, the fruit is there to balance and last in parallel with the tannins, holding the wine fresh. If you enjoy youthful cabernet, decant this for a delicious accompaniment to a well-aged, well-marbled steak. Or forget this in the cellar for at least ten years."

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
