Robert Keenan Winery Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon has notes of dusty black fruits, plums & soft vanilla. It is not an oaky bomb. It's drinkable now with about an hour of decanting, and will continue to age over the next decade or more.

From Magnum, which I suspect was mis-priced by the retailer as a 750ml. Any leeriness regarding the vintage was assuaged by the reputation and location of the producer. Keenan has been producing Spring Mountain juice since 1977. Nils Venge has been consulting Michael Keenan since 1994, and his hand is evident. Really hits its stride at two hours. Reminiscent of Cathy Corison's 2011, the wine opens with beautifully roasted poblano peppers, which leads into a stunningly authentic mole sauce replete with a full array of Mexican spices. All of which sets the stage for the fleshy black cherry. They definitely included some valley floor fruit, but the mountain fruit is more than evident, providing structure and ultimately responsible for a finish which leaves everything dusted in artisanally sourced Peruvian cocoa powder. Definitely going back for all the rest tomorrow.
