Slide 2 2016 Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, Spring Mountain District, December 2018 94 Points: “Containing 7% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple
colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Spring Mountain offers up
cassis, cedar, toast and earth on the nose with bay leaves, mint and
chocolate nuances. Medium-bodied and elegant, it has firm, chewy
tannins and is vibrant in the mouth, finishing with a minty lift.”
Slide 2 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, Spring Mountain District, December 2018 96 Points: “The 2016 brings together dense, unctuous fruit and
terrific freshness. A classically built medium-bodied wine of the style
that are seldom found in Napa Valley today. Hints of sage, lavender,
espresso and menthol add aromatic intrigue, but it is the wine’s
balance and sense of proportion that I find most alluring today.
This is a fabulous showing from Robert Keenan.”
Slide 2 2016 Mernet, Reserve, Spring Mountain District, December 2018 95 Points: “Blended of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon,
the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Mernet Reserve is scented
of baked plums, blueberries, black cherries, earth and tobacco
with pepper and herbs hints. The medium to full-bodied palate
is very firm, chewy and muscular, finishing earthy.”

Slide 2 Wine & Spirits 19th Annual Restaurant Poll, April 2008 Top 10 in America: “San Francisco wine competition judge
who writes for Beverages & More, eCommerce Cellarmaster.
ranks Keenan’s Napa Valley Merlot as one of the top 10 most
popular Merlot’s in American Restaurants.”
Slide 2 2002 Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve - Top 9 out of 535 American Cabernets 94 Points: “Over the last twelve months, Wine & Spirits tasted 535
American Cabernet Sauvignon wines. Nine out of the 535 Cabernet
Sauvignons received the strongest praise from our critics, including
the Keenan 2002 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. Mountain-grown
tannins give this a superrich feel, the flavor black and exotic with
a deep, primary feel. For lamb or game sausages. (280 cases) “
Slide 2 2016 Keenan Zinfandel Spring Mountain District, June 2020 92 Points: ”Michael Keenan farms zinfandel vines on an east-facing slope high up
Spring Mountain that provide 80 percent of this wine(the parcels include five
percent alicante and carignane). The balance comes from a vineyard Peter Nissen
tends in Calistoga, where the vines are 70 years old. The combination yields a
wine with intense dark fruit—it has the perfume of black cherries as their skins
are just coming into ripeness. The minerally tannins are earthy, with a cola-like
spice; their reduction seems to be tied to the site’s volcanic soils. It’s a wine with
power and grace, built to age ten years or more.

Slide 2 2017 Keenan Cabernet Franc, Spring Mountain District, December 2018 93 Points: “The 2017 Cabernet Franc Upper Bowl Vineyard is a gorgeous wine
that brings together all the best of the Keenan house style. Deep and fleshy in
the glass, with lovely aromatic top notes, the 2017 is wonderfully deep and
expressive, always in the mid-weight style that is such a house signature.”
Slide 2 2018 Keenan Chardonnay Spring Mountain District, June 2020 93 Points: ”Michael Keenan farms a large block of chardonnay adjacent to
his winery on Spring Mountain, the vines planted in 1995, close enough to
underground springs that they provide an abundant crop without irrigation.
His 2018 is intriguing and layered, a complex mountain-grown chardonnay
with an earthy tannic briskness to sustain it. The flavors range from lime to
yellow apple and green plum, firm enough to absorb the oak in which it aged,
and to last, with the cool pallor of a morning-sun wine.”
