Vineyard Notes

2017 Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon, Reserve, Spring Mountain District

2017 marks the 41st vintage for the Robert Keenan Winery and the 17th consecutive vintage of Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. This year’s blend consists of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 7 and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 15, both from our “Big K” vineyard, and 10% Cabernet Franc from our “Upper Bowl” vineyard. Deep aromatics, piercing and precise, a full rich saturated mouth feel, and a long lasting multi-layered finish define this exemplary blend. Enjoy now or decades from now. Cheers!

"Keenan's 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is deep, layered and super-expressive. Black plum, licorice, chocolate, grilled herbs and cloves give the 2017 a distinctly dark profile to match its brooding personality. The 2017 offers terrific depth, but the tannins are a bit rough at this stage and will need time to soften.” Antonio Galloni

" Michael Keenan’s collection of vineyard parcels at high elevations on Spring Mountain created a totally delicious 2017 Reserve. Its pure mountain-blueberry essence is hard to find outside of a sunny August day spent eating blueberries straight off the bush. There’s also a brighter glimmer of red fruit, seeming to reflect off the mineral tannins as the flavors leap out of the glass. A chef friend remarked on the complexity of this wine and how it would be easy to drink a lot of it: ‘The tannins are kind of perfect, begging for teriyaki beef.’ Those fruit tannins have a delicacy and freshness that’s rare in any vintage, and may be a marker for the best of the 2017s.”-- Joshua Greene, Wine & Spirits Magazine
