When you put Celia Welch & 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 Wine: 

Chocolate-covered cherries, blackberries, baked plums and a hint of sweet mocha waft from the glass of this lovely 100% Cabernet.  A touch of vanilla and barrel toast adds complexity to the fruit-centered aromas.  On the palate, the texture is broad and creamy at entry, with a fresh fruit character dominating the mid-palate and finish.  The finish fades to a lasting impression of fresh berry and vanilla flavors wrapped around a creamy, polished texture. 

Robert Parker 95 points :

"Keever’s  Cabernet Sauvignon bristles on the palate with explosive aromas and flavors that conquer all of the senses. Vibrant, floral aromatics meld seamlessly into a gracious core of fruit as the wine opens up in the glass. At once structured yet delicate, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is pure elegance and glass. Another year or two in bottle should help the tannins resolve a bit. Today, it is a bit closed because of its recent bottling, but it is impressive just the same. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030"
