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.

Tried a 1984 from the cellar! What the heck! Turns out fruit is still there although starting to fade. No tannins of course. Stood up whole night at Monday's Wine dinner. A must give 91 rating for there effort! CB

Holy damn high acid. Testament that whole ripe rich is merely a style decision - not Napa's only option. Nervy as all get out / I want this dude again in 10 years.
