Robert Keenan Spring Mountain Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
|Appellation||Spring Mountain District|
Wine AdvocateMore broodingly backward, tannic, and less revealing, but with high potential is the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (a 500-case blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc). Subtle notions of cedarwood, black currant liqueur, licorice, smoke, and graphite are followed by a wine with abundant tannin, concentration, and structure. Cellar this beauty for 2-3 years, and consume it over the following two decades. (90+)
Wine SpectatorDense and firmly built, yet has a sense of style and plushness. Aromas of red currant, sage and spicy mocha lead to lingering flavors of plum and dried herb. Drink now through 2015. 330 cases made.
