30th Anniversary 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 — a month ago

Epic bottle of classic Cabernet made with great care very quiet at first, but opened and opened over the course of two hours in the decanter. Fleshy black fruit, soft silky texture, very fine. #pauldraper #springmountain — 5 years ago

Philip Togni Vineyard

Tanbark Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Refreshing to taste as this has remained true to a more traditional style.
Deep garnet in color. Bing cherry, currants, pencil shavings, licorice and some bell pepper, a youthful and enveloping nose. The palate is bright with medium acidity, medium+ body and fine to medium grain tannin. A long and complicated (good thing) finish. Insane value for Napa Cabernet single vineyard wine. Don't worry about hunting this vintage, get whatever you find.

Elivette Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Vacation day in Tahoe, so we opened this beauty for 1 hour before dinner. We enjoyed it all the way through. Sweet nose, smooth, with a balance of choice fruit. Wow! #springmountain — 4 years ago

Reserve Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

02' Keenan Reserve Cabernet. After popping my 01 Silverado reserve a few days ago... I started thinking about what cabernets I consumed 5-10-15 years ago. I remembered how much I loved these wines at the time.

I thought this could possibly be a pop and pour wine. Very little on the nose when I originally popped it. The tannins needed to soften up a little bit. After 15 minutes, started to open up. I also remembered how much I loved that smokiness & soft elegant black fruit. Violets...I couldn't forget that long and inviting finish.
Drink them up!

Those wines are worth the wait. I love his wines but they need soooo much time, before they are ready. Wish there were more Napa producers like him!
