Robert Keenan Winery Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$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 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa has more cassis, tar, camphor and an attractive, fleshy, full-bodied mouthfeel, impressive ripeness and body. This is a solid Cabernet to drink now and over the next 10-15 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."

Deep dark red with aromas of black fruits and complex spice. Some of the grapes were sourced from Pope Valley adding complex depth to the wine. On the palate rich blackberry and blueberry flavors, great mouthfeel, with tobacco and cedar notes. Full-bodied, well balanced, fine tannins in a firm lingering finish gives this wine backbone to age well for another decade.

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.

A really nice traditional cab. Drank the 2012 and was probably as early as I would want it. Good structure, everything you would expect from a very traditional cab.

Bright, bold, jammy. Cherry cola! Rating this a day after opening it. Deep red/Violet. Mixed fruit and floral bouquet. Had this next to some other 2012 Napa Cabs throughout the week and this is a clear front runner.
