2010 Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon, Reserve, Napa Valley, Spring Mtn. Dist., 750mL

SKU CS10RT

2010 Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon, Reserve, Napa Valley, Spring Mountain District


    2010 marks the 34th vintage for the Robert Keenan Winery and the 10th consecutive vintage of “Reserve” Cabernet Sauvignon. The five new cabernet clones that were replanted as bench grafts in the spring of ’98 are now showing their individual characteristics and the vineyard now in its thirteenth year has hit full maturity. A combination of 91% Clone 7 Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Clone 337 Cabernet Sauvignon was chosen for this 100% Estate Spring Mountain cuvee of sadly only 310 cases. Deep aromatics, a full, rich, saturated mouth feel, and a long lasting multi-layered finish define this exemplary blend. Enjoy now or decades from now. Cheers!        Michael Keenan

“The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (100% estate Cabernet Sauvignon) screams black currants and blueberries in a full-bodied, fresh, vibrant, high energy style. The color is a deep purple, and the wine possesses brilliant focus, impressive purity and a freshness that belies its power (14.9% alcohol) and concentration. A beauty of elegance and authority, it should drink well for 15-20 years.”

“The tannins are mountain tough, the acidity is just fine, and the flavors, well, how can you describe their power? Massive in blackberry essence and cassis liqueur, it has a tangy, minerally lick of granite that must come from the soil. Start enjoying it in 2018."
