Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon 2017. Napa Valley, California

The 2017 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 Napa. The fruit clusters were de-stemmed, and then fermented for ten to fourteen days. The wine was barrel-aged in thirty-three percent new French and American oak for twenty months. The blend was assembled just before bottling. 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. High in the Mayacamas Range, at an elevation of 1,700 feet above the Napa Valley floor, are Spring Mountain and the Robert Keenan Winery and vineyards. While the beauty and history of the land are appealing, it is the richness of the soils that makes the hillside perfect for an estate winery.
