Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 30th Anniversary 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Wine Enthusiast: This is a young, vigorous Cabernet Sauvignon. It's tannic, in the way of Spring Mountain, and very tightly wound, with a central core of black currants and minerals. Its pedigree is evident throughout, but it's a wine you want to age before opening. Hold until 2012, and it should provide good drinking for years beyond. (May 2010)

High in the Mayacamas Range, at an elevation of 1,700 feet above the Napa Valley floor, are Spring Mountain and the Robert Keenan Winery and vineyards. This area was first identified as prime vineyard land by Peter Conradi in the late 19th century when he planted 100 acres of terraced vineyard in Zinfandel and Syrah grapes. The Conradi Winery operated until Prohibition when the vineyards and winery fell out of use. In 1974, Robert Keenan purchased 180 acres of forest on the defunct Conradi Winery site. No vines remained. Only the crumbling walls of the former winery and a few old broken tanks told of its history, but Robert was certain the mountain top vineyards would be perfect for an estate winery. He replaced tree stumps and rocks with rows of Cabernet and Chardonnay, hired an engineer to redesign the original winery structure, and brought in a contractor to begin construction. The winery was made operational just in time for the harvest of 1977. From that time on, Keenan has earned a great reputation for producing wines of intense character and renowned acclaim. Read less

Lovely deep purple in the glass. Mature nose--some wood, some earth. Quite mellow on the palate. Some typical Cab cassis flavors. Very, very tame tannin. Some acid is making me think this is going to be great with tonight's lamb. US$36.00 from the Winery in 2010
