Spring Mountain, Napa, CA
Keenan Winery 2006 Cabernet Sauvigon, Spring Mountain, Napa, CA
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.
Reviews and Awards:
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.”
