Robert Keenan Winery

40th Vintage Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Toasty plum and rye with cedar hinting at mascarpone-mint, boasting bright blueberry, dry blackberry and raisin-currant melange; withered hibiscus. Decidedly grape-y on the nose and into a mouthful of red currant, dried cranberries, green tea, pencil, cinnamon bark, savory, plus a salted black plum, and baked cranberry. This one has had oxygen exposure for 7 days, but is still wound up. Hold this one for a ten year minimum in my opinion. It was good yesterday, but better today. It shall not live to see tomorrow. Honestly built and spectacular in the making. #keenan #robertkeenanwinery #keenancab #napacabs #napacab #cab #cabernetsauvignon #cabsauv #sainthelena #springmountaincabernet #springmountaindistrict #springmountain #mountainfruit #mountainwine #sustainablyfarmed #sustainable #solarpoweredwine — 3 years ago

Cabernet Sauvignon

Initial mussel in cherry tomato and plum sauce with rosemary toned down to reflect dried boysenberry and blackberry with ripe, black currant, morel, and soft lead. Full-bodied with silken texture that boasts licorice, blackberry, dark tobacco, cedar, and smoke. Nice wine in every way. #Lucian #napacabs #Napa #cab #2013 — 6 years ago


Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

An under the radar producer that always delivers. Dark garnet in the glass. Scents of plum, vanilla, toast and spice. Black fruit, anise, and a velvety mouthfeel. Tannins have softened and the savory notes are starting to emerge. The finish is nice and smooth, if a bit short. Time will be this bottle’s friend. 2013 vintage #handwrittenwines #napacabs — 4 years ago

Dark fruit is very pronounced. Tannins present but softer than expected. Nice finish. Smoke and vanillin from barrel well integrated. Going great with meatloaf dinner! 😋 #napacabs #cab — 8 years ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016


Very fine #cabernetsauvignon is suitable for aging. Very juicy and fresh with medium+ acidity and a lovely juicy and balsamic finish with sensations of bay leaf and thyme. #napacabs and reasonable for the price. — 4 years ago

Walton Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Began as black olives for miles but betrayed its fruit roots quickly enough, with baked black cherry, and a black plum mash; black currant and gingerbread-mocha notes sparkling on its grainy veneer. Torn violet petals. Lots of sediment, or pigmented tartaric crystals. Super elegant and fleshy mouthfeel is perhaps its most compelling nuance. Black currant, soft leather, smoke, a scribble of pencil, snuffed wick, teak, and black tea. Bittersweet chocolate remains like a cloud, suspended while most aspects fade. Leather friction.

Beaulieu Vineyard

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

Not dead, but the old cinnamon-cherry plum tart nose turns a slight rot of tropical compost and black banana pudding. Cedar-smoked cranberry sauce, dusty grape skins and wet clove. Finishes muddy with a little tar. Past it's time by a tiny margin. #BV #rutherford #napacabbootlickers #napacabs — 7 years ago
