$27 per 750ml bottle

The intense flavor and bouquet of Keenan's 1995 Cabernet exemplify the characteristics of mountain grown grapes. Our 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon is composed primarily of grapes grown on Spring Mountain; the remainder of the fruit was harvested from select vineyards on the floor of the Napa Valley. Keenan carefully chose these vineyards' grapes to add complexity, and to soften the powerful Keenan Estate fruit.

The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon has been aged in French oak barrels for 20 months, and a small amount of Merlot was added before bottling. Due to the big, rich character of the wine, eighteen months of bottle age was allowed before release. The resulting wine is comprised of concentrated black cherry and currant aromas, yet notes of coffee and spice are noticed as the wine opens up. The rich flavors and full body are complimented by a nice amount of oak and a lingering toasty finish.


1995 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. "The deep, luxurious scent of fresh, dark woodland berries shows off the wine's intensity. A comforting, old-style Napa Cabernet, decant it and curl up with a glass around a fire..."
