Keever 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon
This fully ripe Cabernet Sauvignon shows intensely aromatic tones of spiced plums, cranberry, cherry tobacco, fresh sage, and a note of warm toasty vanilla. On the palate the texture is immediately broad and plush, with bright, fresh berry notes and dusty mocha/dark cherry flavors both simultaneously enveloping the palate. The finish displays surprisingly resolved tannins given the overall weightof the wine, and fades to a lingering impression of fresh cherry.
About Keever Vineyards:
Based on the south side of the historic Yountville sub-appellation, this family owned winery and estate vineyard had their first vintage in 2002. With six acres of estate vineyards and very little outside sourcing, production here is tiny and the family is absolutely hands-on. Scarecrow's Celia Welch is an excellent fit as the winemaker here, helping the Keevers to craft wines of quality, integrity and plenty of character.
