Tasting Notes:
The 2006 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is composed primarily of grapes grown on Keenan’s Spring Mountain District Estate; the remainder of the fruit was harvested from Pope Valley, a grape-growing region located in the eastern portion of the Napa Valley. The Estate grown Cabernet imparts amazing concentration and remarkable structure, while the portion of Cabernet harvested from Pope Valley adds complex aromas and a balanced mid-palate. With notes of ripe raspberries, blueberries, spicy oak and hints of earth. The palate has silky tannins, good acidity, and medium-bodied elegance.

Accolades:

Robert M. Parker, Jr.’s The Wine Advocate, Issue # 180 December 31, 2008 – 90 Points “The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon 30th Anniversary exhibits a dark ruby color, lush tannins (not an easy achievement in 2006), sweet dark fruits, subtle barrique, and damp earth characteristics. Consume this attractive, seductive Cabernet over the next decade.”

General Food Pairing Suggestions:
A big, bold, complex wine like this needs a dish that can stand up to its full body. Steak, grilled pork, hamburgers and pasta with meaty red sauce are all good pairings. Hard cheeses pair especially well with Cabernet, like aged Gouda and mild Blue cheeses.
About the Winery
Keenan Winery High above the Napa Valley floor on Spring Mountain sits a vineyard where the soils are responsible for dramatic and intense fruit associated with ultra-premium wines. In the 1800s, the Conradi Winery operated on this land. Another casualty of Prohibition, the vineyards and winery fell out of use until 1974 when Robert Keenan arrived. Learn more
