The 2019 Keenan Napa Valley Merlot shows intense aromas of black cherry, blackberry, and cassis. Complex nuances of cocoa and coffee bean emerge as the wine opens up.

It isn’t often that we meet with a winery to taste and we’re floored by every single wine they present. This happens maybe 3 times a year. Candidly, that’s what happens every year when Michael Keenan comes to visit. Michael is the GM and winemaker at this outstanding Spring Mountain property, which his dad Robert Keenan resurrected from the bones of a 19th century ghost winery in 1977. Keenan has flown under the radar for a long time — that is until Bob Parker had something to say about it: “Keenan has been on a real high-quality roll for a number of years, and they are among my favorite wines in Napa Valley, combining power and complexity. They’ve certainly found their groove.” – Robert M. Parker, Jr. These wines have it all: balance, power, complexity, and that inimitable dusty, underbrushy, bay leaf <i>goût de terroir</i> of the Mayacamas Range.
