Stellar. Actually still maybe too dense and young, still tons of chewy black fruit, stand up tannins. But good balance of chocolate-spice oak and cedar-mushrooms secondaries. Old Napa doing its thing in spectacular fashion. Can definitely go higher ratings wise. For $45 bucks, unbelievable!

Happy Independence Day! Classic American Cabernet. This is probably more old school. Not heavy but packs depths of flavor and intensity.

Good cab, pretty constrained. Subtle tannins and not a fruit bomb.

Hint of vanilla and clove, ripe dark fruit. Decanted a couple hours and ready to drink

Intense blackberry and pomegranate with notes of oak, graphite and coffee. Very dark color and a very interesting wine. Not the greatest vintage from Napa, but an interesting wine that’s holding just fine at 10 years.

Straight up the middle Napa Cab, with plenty of acidity and bright red fruit. Not over-extracted or over-oaked, and a style I can get behind.

If more of Napa's fruit forward minded producers could mimic Keenan. Well integrated red and black fruit, and a dash of Cab earthiness. Cedar box warmth, and a breath of vanilla.
