Keenan Cabernet Franc Spring Mountain Estate 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Robert Parker: The 2008 Cabernet Franc (100% Cabernet Sauvignon from estate vineyard planted at a 2000 foot elevation) now represents 524 cases. Cabernet Franc has performed brilliantly at this height, and this is another example of the potential of Spring Mountain. This dense purple-hued wine is richly fruity with a beautiful floral, blueberry, raspberry and black currant-scented nose, good underlying minerality and a gorgeous fruit intensity without any sense of heaviness (14.3% alcohol). Elegant, pure and well-textured, this is a stunning Cabernet Franc to drink over the next decade. (Dec 2010)

Very much a musty/viney nose. On the tongue you know this one is a brute. What black fruit may be detected by the tip of the tongue is there is swept away by earthiness and tobacco or dark chocolate flavors as the wine passes farther along the tongue and palate. Pair this one with your biggest beef roast meals.
