Robert Keenan 2015 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Spring Mountain District Napa Valley
Wine & Spirits 93 Rating
If you’re looking for a cabernet with an exceptional track record, consider that Michael Keenan’s Reserve has earned 94 points or more in every vintage since 2011. This 2015 is close to that level, a tarry, concentrated cabernet from 17-year-old vines at Keenan’s Big K vineyard, high up Spring Mountain, with a small contribution of cabernet franc. It’s intensely spicy, with coriander, anise and red pepper pricking the wine’s dark earthiness. The fruit emerges over the course of several days, adding a taste of fresh-picked cherries in the midst of the black extract. It’s zesty and racy, with the energy to age, and the flavor concentration to repay patient cellaring.
