Robert Keenan Winery Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena 2004
2004 marks the 28th vintage for the Robert Keenan Winery and the 4th 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 three of the five clones was chosen for this cuvee of 450 cases. Clone 7 (81%) provides the tremendously rich fruit in this wine, clone 4 (14%) provides a wonderful chocolaty component to the mid palette, and clone 15 (5%) adds just enough Spring Mountain District depth and complexity to perfect the blend. Enjoy now or years from now. A combination of three of the five clones was chosen for this cuvee of 450 cases.

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Diamond Series selection. 94+ Points, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate – “A beautiful wine, the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve boasts classic crème de cassis, cedar, tobacco leaf, spice box, and pain grille aromas and flavors. This impeccably made, full-bodied, super-concentrated Cabernet reveals good delineation and freshness as well as surprising definition and elegance for a wine of such power and intensity. If you haven’t discovered the wines of Robert Keenan, it’s time to jump on the bandwagon as quality appears to go from strength to strength.” 5 out of 5 Stars, Decanter magazine

External Reviews for Robert Keenan Winery Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena
Classic aromas of cedar, black currants, licorice, graphite, and spicy oak emerge from the full-bodied, powerful, opulent, opaque purple-colored 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon. This concentrated, rich, impressively-endowed Cabernet is a steal for the price.... Robert Parker. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2004 Robert Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
The profound 2004 Mernet Reserve is a 297-case blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This stunning offering demonstrates just how far Keenan has come over the last several years with their Bordeaux proprietary blend. A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary perfume of black fruits, blueberries, licorice, sweet leather, chocolate truffles, and espresso roast. Full-bodied, opulent, and dense, it is already approachable, but should evolve for 15-20 years.
