2012 is our 14th 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 50% Merlot all coming from the “Mailbox” vineyard. The Cabernet half this year is 44% Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 15 from the “Big K” vineyard and 6% Cabernet Franc from the “Upper Bowl” vineyard.
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. Enjoy now or decades from now.
