Spring Mountain District
2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is composed primarily of grapes grown on Keenan’s Spring Moun- tain District Estate; the remainder of the fruit was harvested from Pope Valley, a grape growing region located in the eastern portion of Napa.
Keenan’s Estate Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were harvested beginning on September 9th, with the final lot being picked on September 28th. After harvest, the fruit clusters were de-stemmed, 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 con- centration and remarkable structure, while the portion of Cabernet harvested from Pope Valley adds complex aromas and a balanced mid-palate.
Robert M. Parker, Jr.’s, The Wine Advocate, October 2017
92 Points: “Produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and displaying a deep garnet-purple color and nose of expressive blackberries, blueberries and pencil shavings plus lovely dried leaves, rose hip tea and fragrant earth nuances, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is medium to full-bodied in the firm, taut, energetic and lively mouth, with grainy tannins and a long, earthy finish.”
