Robert Keenan Winery

40th Vintage Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Toasty plum and rye with cedar hinting at mascarpone-mint, boasting bright blueberry, dry blackberry and raisin-currant melange; withered hibiscus. Decidedly grape-y on the nose and into a mouthful of red currant, dried cranberries, green tea, pencil, cinnamon bark, savory, plus a salted black plum, and baked cranberry. This one has had oxygen exposure for 7 days, but is still wound up. Hold this one for a ten year minimum in my opinion. It was good yesterday, but better today. It shall not live to see tomorrow. Honestly built and spectacular in the making. #keenan #robertkeenanwinery #keenancab #napacabs #napacab #cab #cabernetsauvignon #cabsauv #sainthelena #springmountaincabernet #springmountaindistrict #springmountain #mountainfruit #mountainwine #sustainablyfarmed #sustainable #solarpoweredwine — 2 years ago

Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Poor vintages reveal good winemakers. So many of the '11 cali cans are a vegetal mess. This though shows dark fruit and leather, tannins present and well integrated. The crew @robertcraigwinery delivers in tough years. #rfc #mountainfruit — 4 years ago

Mt. Veeder Chardonnay 2011

Shimmering. Lemon peel, vinyl, spice. Mountain fruit FTW. #chardonnay #wine #btv #mountainfruit — 8 years ago

Espino Gran Cuvée Carménère

Sweet Madura tobacco and mocha with a touch of tar, dark roast coffee, prime rib, iron pan, luxardo cherry, cedar bark, toasted marshmallow in this autumnally aromatic feast of perfumes. Spicy and lean into dense graphite and dark chocolate, blueberry, cassis, smoky raisin, baked plum, blackberry and pomegranate reduction. Violets for miles with a rich sloe-berry and burnt sugar cookie finish. #williamfèvre #carmenère #espino #chilewineday #chile #wine #redwine #svs #singlevineyard #grancuvée #mountainwine #mountainfruit — 4 years ago
