Issue: Issue 156
(a 50/50 blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon): Bright ruby-red. Reticent but ripe aromas of cassis, violet, licorice and sweet oak. Supple, lush and chocolate but with good shape and energy to its fine-grained middle palate. Nicely aromatic on the lingering finish, and not overly extracted.

The 2007 Mernet Reserve, a brilliant blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is prodigious. Floral notes interwoven with white chocolate, creme de cassis, graphite, licorice, and a hint of bay leaf are followed by a substantial, full-bodied wine with a finish that goes on for nearly a minute. The multilayered texture, depth of fruit, silky yet substantial tannins, and profound finish put it into the uber qualitative category. This wow wine is a brilliant example of what Michael Keenan has been accomplishing on Spring Mountain over the last five or more years. It should drink well for 20-25 years.
