The 2012 Reserve Cabernet is a blend of all estate Cabernet Sauvignon (93%) and Cabernet Franc 97%). Offernig up deep aromatics.  On the palate you’ll encouter a piercing and precise full rich, saturated mouth feel loaded with bold concentrated, yet well-balanced fruit. The long-lasting multi-layered finish defines this exemplary blend. Enjoy now or decades from now. Cheers!

Robert Parker 96 Points: “The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve from the estate in Spring Mountain Vineyards is the thirty-sixth vintage for the Robert Keenan Winery. This wine has 7% Cabernet Franc added into the blend and 700 cases were produced. A blockbuster wine for sure, with an inky/purple color, sweet crème de cassis, graphite, chocolate a hint of charcoal and burning embers – almost as if it wanted to behave like a Graves from Bordeaux. This is full-bodied, very rich, powerful and still moderately tannic. It’s a baby for sure, but what an impressive one. This wine needs a good 3-4 years of bottle age and should keep well for 25-30 years at the minimum.”
