Robert Keenan Winery


I am honored to have had the opportunity to taste three wonderful reds from the Robert Keenan Winery, established in the Spring Mountain District in Napa Valley.  Here is what I found.

Keenan Winery 2010 Syrah, Napa Valley :  Spicy black fruit, musk, slight dill on the nose with a hearty, yet velvety offering of smokiness, dark chocolate, earth on the palate.  A perfectly calculated Syrah with a sublime, lengthy, semi wet finish.

Keenan Winery 2011 Cabernet Franc, Napa Valley, Spring Mountain District:  This 35th anniversary release is elegantly smooth, gifting poetically calculated attributes of tobacco, graphite and dark currant. With a profoundly poetic mouthfeel, sound acidity and a engaging lingering tannin; this glorious Cabernet Franc has a embracing finish of tar, toasted oak and spice.

Keenan Winery 2011 Merlot, Napa Valley:  This 35th anniversary dense Merlot lends a refined nose of sweet cedar, luscious wild dark fruit and course ground black pepper. Accompanied with tremendous flavors of divine plum, blackberry and fine English pipe tobacco across the palate; this outstanding Merlot seals the deal with medium weight firm tannin and a memorable, seemingly forever finish.

What a wonderful ride with these outstanding wines and if you want true California wines that offer more than just big fruit and no structure. Order yours today!
