Wow, incredible Village lieu dit that could easily drink as Premier Cru, some great skills in cellar for sure. Sweet candied cherries with a slight attractive reductive note on the nose. So incredibly and seductively polished in its texture. — 15 hours ago
A fading Mondavi Reserve but still captures the essense of the Rutherford Bench. Spicy coffee and Napa damp earth. A bit sad as this era of Napa’s Finest (at the time) begins to fade. A strong berry nutty and spicy finish. Thanks RM, — 7 days ago
Dark ruby in color with a short purplish rim.
Fruity nose with blackberries, blueberries, oak, licorice, vanilla, mint, vegetables, dust, chocolates, earth and peppercorn.
Full bodied, smooth and bold, with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet raspberries, figs, vanilla, licorice, oak, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead, dark chocolates, coke and peppercorn.
Long finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a very enjoyable Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Well balanced with nice complexity and a nice mouthfeel.
Bold and rich, yet elegant. Smooth with a tangy ending that makes it interesting.
Good right out of the bottle, and better as it opens up and shows some tannins. After 90 minutes of airtime, vegetables come in on the nose, but not much on the palate.
Still young, and needs a few years in the bottle to mature. Good by itself as a sipping wine.
Soft and yummy.

Dry white Sauvignon Blanc one of my favorites — 7 days ago
Medium crimson with light ruby undertones and a cherry red rim. Wonderfully aromatic nose of leather, tons of roasted oak, and tobacco. This is still a bit young to open but you won’t regret it too much. About as Oakville as you can get, it’s full bodied with a terrific combination of finesse and sheer power. Still a bit tight, this needs a good bit of time before she really opens up and reveals herself. Reminiscent of a nice Left Bank, the palate shows chocolate mousse, vanilla, mild oak, and blackberries. Quite the nice complex palate that just keeps evolving over time. Long finish with spice and cocoa. If you want a true Oakville Cab, this is it folks. — 6 days ago
What was meant to be a casual dinner with friends over homemade BLTs ended up turning into a full-blown wine dinner.
Juicy, savory, and pretty balanced. I’ve always enjoyed Keenan. Dark fruits like muddled blueberries and blackberries, dark chocolate, cedar/musk. — 20 days ago
Smooth like silk with a complex richness of flavours which will mellow as it rests — 15 days ago
