This wine is really nice and represents more of an "old school" style of CS. Dark berry fruit is present but not the star! Earth and minerals mingle nicely...pencil lead..eucalyptus..leather..
Cola..Bakers chocolate..oak.& cherry compote!

Drinks like a ripe Bordeaux - cedar, dark fruits, some Napa dust, graphite, cocoa, and a slight hint of tobacco. Fine tannins, good structure and a long finish. — 7 days ago
1st of the New Year/New Decade diet cheat night with the wifey. Trying something new...on recommendation from the waiter. Smooth, slightly jammy with a small bite. Defiantly a wine to have again. — 13 days ago
A few fun 4th Friday wines from tonight.
I’ll be honest...this was very similar to the ‘09 Gruaud Larosse it shared the table with. Nice compliment. These Elivette’s have so much structure and can age for a good while, and while I’m sure this vintage is no different, it seemed much more approachable at a young age than previous vintages. Aromatically it shows potpourri, brambly fruits, some fig, and only a hint of leather. Dark core that is fairly soft, with blue and black fruits, pencil shavings, baked plum, dark chocolate and a very lengthy finish. Lots to like here. — a month ago
Pride winery recommended Keenan to us! Thank you. This Cab Franc is wonderful. Will be saving the rest and ordering more. Just as good as it was at the very nice tasting. — 20 days ago
This is a very nice sweet wine from Napa Valley.
Showing black fruits with wood, cooked cherries, dried fruits, coffee, light citrus (on the nose), eucalyptus, light alcohol, dark coffee and spices.
Full bodied sweet and bold with medium plus acidity.
Has enough acidity to balance the sugars.
This 13 year old Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.
14.1% alcohol by volume.
