Robert Keenan Winery 35th Anniversary Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

$49

Keenan is a fantastic producer on Napa Valley's Spring Mountain. Neighboring Pride, Paloma, Barnett and Cain, the 35th Anniversary Cabernet is a beautiful mountain Cabernet we highly recommend. 90 Points Robert Parker:  "The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot. Surprisingly rich, ripe and heady with lots of black currant and black cherry fruit, no hint of herbaceousness or earthiness and medium to full body, this delicate, finesse-styled Cabernet is a noteworthy success in 2011. Given its fast evolutionary track, it should be consumed over the next 7-8 years. Micheal Keenan has done an incredible job at this Spring Mountain winery over the last 10-15 years, producing one of the finest Cabernet Francs in all of northern California as well as hitting all cylinders with his other Bordeaux varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot as well as his sumptuous blend called Mernet."

Always good. Super long finish with supportive but not overwhelming tannins.

Nice mineral balance now, but would benefit from a year or two of patience :)

Quite light for a Napa Cab. Mild blackberry with a hint of vegetal green right now.

Deep and lush with pronounced red and black fruit, nice acid and ample tannin. Finish is long and mouthwatering. A great effort for a vintage that was largely panned by critics. Great winemakers still made great wine in 2011 and this is a great example. I suspect this one will also improve over the next decade or so.

I wouldn't normally go for a Napa Cab but this was good. A big wine but also very balanced. From magnum.

N: green spice. P: big tannins. Needs some air time. Black cherries are in the background.
