Very pretty plum color in the glass. A lot happening on the nose--berry, anise, menthol. Honest to gosh my first tongue sensation was bubble gum. Thankfully that dissipated quickly. I do still get some of those herbal things that were detected in the nose. A quite sturdy wine--from nice tannin and acid. A very good wine. $73.00 from the winery in St. Helena in 2009.

Winemaker's Notes:

2005 marks the 29th vintage for the Robert Keenan Winery and the 5th consecutive vintage of “Reserve” Cabernet Sauvignon. The five new Cabernet Sauvignon clones that were replanted as bench grafts in the spring of ’98 are now showing their individual characteristics. A combination of two of the five clones was chosen for this 100% Spring Mountain District cuvee of 450 cases. Clone 7 (75%) from our “Upper Bowl” provides the tremendously rich fruit in this wine, and clone 337 (25%) provides just enough depth and rich, earthy complexity to perfect the blend. Enjoy now or years from now.
