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!

Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.
