One of our local distributors called with a great tip and exceptional pricing on a designer Cab, perfectly cellared and with age. While doing an inventory 48 bottles of 2011 Keenan Spring Mountain Reserve Cab turned up. Knowing that we do well with older vintages and Library Releases they called us first.
P.S. we have been fans of Keenan for years but have not had the opportunity to take notes on this wine. Pro reviews below.
All the very best, Rex and Michele.
Vinous 94 points - Dark cherry, plum, spice, mocha, tobacco, new leather and licorice notes emerge from the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve. Here it is the wine's depth and creaminess allied to a classic sense of structure that impresses. The 2011 should drink well relatively early, but there is also enough depth to support another 10-15 years beyond that, perhaps longer. The 2011 Reserve isn't an obvious wine, but it sure is beautiful. (Nov 2013)
Wine & Spirits 94 points - A finely tailored mountain wine, this proves the quality that could be achieved above the fog in 2011. It has the cool feel of the forest on Spring Mountain, the wine's freshness portrayed in scents of violets, red apple skin, cedar and humus. Savory rather than directly fruity, this emphasizes the power and grace of its tannins, their cool briskness of crushed rock leaving the mouth feeling refreshed. It may be rich, but the flavors remain precise.
The proof is always in the glass!
