2013 marks the 37th vintage for the Robert Keenan Winery and the 13th consecutive vintage of “Reserve” Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard now in its sixteenth year has hit full maturity. This year’s blend consists of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 7 from our “Upper Bowl” estate vineyard, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 15 from our “Big K” estate vineyard and 5% Merlot from our “Mailbox” estate vineyard. Deep aromatics, piercing and precise, a full rich saturated mouth feel, and a long lasting multi-layered finish define this exemplary blend. The 2013 Reserve Cabernet also shows a distinctly savory note on the finish that appears to be a signature aspect of the entire vintage. Enjoy now or decades from now. Cheers!

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve from their Spring Mountain estate has a more saturated purple color, beautiful texture, loads of blueberry and blackcurrant fruit and a touch of spring flowers. This is clearly mountain, cool-climate Cabernet with full body, sweet tannin and impressive purity. This beautiful wine from Robert Keenan can be drunk now or cellared for 20 or more years."--Robert Parker
"A big, bold wine, the attention-grabbing 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve has a lot to say. The vertical sense of structure allied to deep fruit results in a complex, multi-faceted Cabernet endowed with pedigree and intrigue. Sage, tobacco, menthol, black cherries and licorice gradually open up in the glass. Like most of the 2013s here, the Reserve is going to require quite a bit of patience, but it is full of potential.."--Antonio Galloni
