Region California, Napa Valley
Brand Robert Keenan
Alcohol/vol 14.3%
The '16 Merlot has been aged in thirty-three percent new French and American oak barrels for eighteen months. The resulting wine shows intense aromas of black cherry, blackberry, and cassis. Complex nuances of cocoa and coffee bean emerge as the wine opens up. This is a "big" Merlot that will age for many years to come.

The 2016 Merlot (Napa Valley) is a very pretty, gracious wine from Keenan. Medium in body and nicely lifted, the 2016 will drink well right out of the gate. Attractive floral and spiced notes add to the wine's gracious, lilting personality.

The 2016 Merlot has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and nose of vague plums, spices, earth and herbs. Medium-bodied, it's soft and innocuous in the mouth with an herbal finish.
