California Merlot Wine



Former second fiddle to cabernet in Bordeaux blends has emerged as a major variety on its own. Though similar to cabernet in some ways, merlot is kinder and gentler than cabernet, with more cherry, plum and red fruit, and less herbal and severe. The structure is plump and lush; tannins are abundant, yet round. Many have the stuffing to age. Found in many "Right Bank" Bordeaux...Pomerol, St. Emilion, Fronsac; labeled merlot in California, Australia and elsewhere; blended with cabernet in Meritage wines.

2009 Keenan - Merlot Napa Valley (750)
2009 Keenan - Merlot Napa Valley (750ml)
Varietal: Merlot | Location: United States - California - Napa
Red Wine 

The 2009 Keenan Merlot is 100% Merlot, 77% from Keenan's Spring Mountain vineyards, and 23% from its vineyards in Napa Carneros. Grapes are hand harvested and de-stemmed before undergoing a fermentation of 10-14 days. The wine is then aged for a full 18 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels (33% new). The 2009 Keenan Merlot opens with distinctly Pomerol-like hints of violets on the nose, with Keenan's signature spiciness emerging on entry. Rich, dark, and full on the palate, the flavor impression remains gracefully layered, deep, and elegant, from the fruit-forward initial entry, to the penetrating, emphatically forceful finish.
