KEEVER 2015 “Yountville” Napa Valley CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Keever Vineyards is nestled in the western slopes of Yountville, California in the Napa Valley. It is a family-owned and operated winery, producing exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon from the family’s six acres of rocky, hillside vineyards

The stony, loamy soils there are well-drained and well-suited to Cabernet Sauvignon. Their wines are crafted by Celia Welch Masyczek, also known for her winemaking at Scarecrow, Buccella, Lindstrom and Vine Cliff.

When you put Celia and Vineyard Manager Jim Barbour on one team, it is like seeing Joe Montana and Jerry Rice connect for some of the best plays (wines) ever.  Celia’s portfolio is well-known as is Jim’s so it is not surprise that the latest Keever is probably the best one to date!

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from Keever Vineyards is an excellent showing which is already quite impressive. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon begins with inviting aromatics of crème de cassis, red currants and ripe plums woven together with intense florals, spices, anise, pipe tobacco and hints of dusted cocoa, which all develop in the glass. On the palate this medium to full-bodied Cabernet delivers beautifully concentrated flavors of ripe plums, spices, mocha and dusty minerals. It continues to thoroughly impress as it displays remarkable balance and finesse, with gorgeous round, polished tannins which are well-integrated, resulting in a seamless quality that makes it nearly impossible to resist. Classy and sophisticated.  Contact us for special pricing!
