Deep plum color. Woody, minty nose. Nice mouth feel. Some tannic astringency. Woody flavors. Balance and structure that I like. Definitely not fruity, and that might put some people off. Far from Keenan Carneros Merlot offerings that I've tried in the past. This is more like their robust Spring Mountain fruit that I really like.

Slight volatile acid on the nose. Not much fruit hints. Something of a fungus hint. Fruit emerges on the tip of the tongue--and a strange "sweetness" (not like sugar and not from alcohol) around the mid-tongue. Some tannin, but not anything big. Pretty easy to drink, today, but I really don't think this is a layer-downer. I'm a little suprised that I don't like this one as much as the 2008 Carneros Keenan that I had a few months ago. I guess that's why we taste them. US$28.80 from the winery's club.
