Issue: Issue 168
Dark red, a bit less bright than the 2010 release. Slightly roasted aromas of plum, currant, blackberry syrup and tobacco. Round and rich but brooding; plush in texture but not overly sweet, with plum, licorice and spice flavors accented by licorice and herbs. Finishes with more granular, dusty tannins than the 2010.

Keenan's 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the highlights in this portfolio. Rich and voluptuous, it totally saturates the palate from start to finish. Dark fruit, violets, spices and licorice all flesh out in this large-scaled, dramatic Cabernet Sauvignon. Everything simply works. The 2009 is a great wine. Even better, it is extremely fairly priced considering the quality of what is in the bottle. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this jewel of a wine. I imagine another few years of bottle age will only help the 2009 develop even more complexity. In this vintage the Cabernet Sauvignon is 73% from Spring Mountain and 27% from Pope Valley. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

Plums, black currants and a hint of toasty oak. This vintage has less body and is not as rich as the past few but still an excellent wine and good value.
