Keever Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Yountville Estate Grown 2005
Notes on the Keever Vineyards Yountville-Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 1.5 Liter Bottle : NVWE NOTES: This is an already charming, but densely packed and well constructed Cabernet, with complex aromas of spiced cherry, red plum, dried orange, red rose and vanilla which gain greater depth from intriguing hints of dried herbs and baking spices. It is round, supple and complex on the palate, where the cherry and plum notes dominate and the herbal/spice elements fall elegantly into their subordinate roll. The finish is long, and as distinguished as what preceded it, marking this already delicious wine as one that will surely grow in stature as it ages. It should get ever more appealing over the next three years, and give pleasure long after. 886 cases produced.KEEVER VINEYARDS YOUNTVILLE-NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2005 1.5 LITER BOTTLE
Super dark crimson color. Opaque and dense. The nose gives very little: cola, blackberry and camphor. The palate has a sweet profile that is packed 10 deep with black fruits of blackberry, black plum, cassis, & black cherry cola. Slightly angular and four square. Big chewy tannins and maybe a wee bit of oak popping its head up. This is a black hole of a cabernet for sure. Good structure. A decent finish and Bobs you uncle...sort of. A well made wine indeed, but I can see it not being everyone's cup 'o tea. It's more loud and noisy and could use a little refinement & class. Time may help, but I would hate to see what fruit is here go south in that time.
