Winemaker Notes

This wine was produced exclusively from grapes grown on the Keenan Estate located in Napa Valley's Spring Mountain District. Our two blocks of Cabernet Franc were harvested on September28th and October 25th, 2007. The fruit was hand picked then, after de-stemming, the must was inoculated with Montrachet yeast and fermented in a stainless steel tank.

"Freakishly good" is how we have come to describe this single vineyard Cabernet Franc from the highest elevation vineyard (approx. 2000') aptly named the "Upper Bowl". Cabernet Francis simply not supposed to be this delicious. Enjoy now or decades from now.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
There are just under 1,000 cases of the 2007 Cabernet Franc, a wine that admirably demonstrates the heights to which this varietal can climb. A brilliant effort, it boasts elegant blue, red, and black fruit notes intermixed with abundant spring flower and forest floor aromas. Intense, yet light on its feet, medium to full-bodied, stylish, and gracious, it is a compelling example of Cabernet Franc from a high elevation (2,000 feet) vineyard. It will be fascinating to follow this lovely wine’s evolution over the next 10-15 years.

Wine & Spirits
A ripe, mountain-grown cabernet franc, this is powerful and earthy. The bold cherry flavors have a deep succulence, almost liqueur-like in their warm and supple feel. Built for roast beef.

Keenan Tasting Room on Spring Mountain Winery Image
High in the Mayacamas Range, at an elevation of 1,700 feet above the Napa Valley floor, are Spring Mountain and the Robert Keenan Winery and vineyards. This area was first identified as prime vineyard land by Peter Conradi in the late 19th century when he planted 100 acres of terraced vineyard in Zinfandel and Syrah grapes. The Conradi Winery operated until Prohibition when the vineyards and winery fell out of use. In 1974, Robert Keenan purchased 180 acres of forest on the defunct Conradi Winery site. No vines remained. Only the crumbling walls of the former winery and a few old broken tanks told of its history, but Robert was certain the mountain top vineyards would be perfect for an estate winery. He replaced tree stumps and rocks with rows of Cabernet and Chardonnay, hired an engineer to redesign the original winery structure, and brought in a contractor to begin construction. The winery was made operational just in time for the harvest of 1977. From that time on, Keenan has earned a great reputation for producing wines of intense character and renowned acclaim.

While the beauty and history of the land are appealing, it is the richness of the soils that makes the hillside perfect for an estate winery. These soils are, in great measure, responsible for the dramatic intensity of the fruit associated with the ultra-premium wines produced at Robert Keenan Winery.

Keenan completed a solar power system on their property that went on-line in 2007. The system supplies all of the estate’s energy needs, including the winery, administrative offices, visitor hospitality area, and the homes located on the property. The Napa Valley Vintners have recognized Keenan as a “green” winery, which they proudly announce on the back labels: Solar Powered and Sustainably Farmed.
