Clone 7 (81%) provides the tremendously rich fruit in this wine, clone 4 (14%) provides a wonderful chocolaty component to the mid palette read more...2004 marks the 28th vintage for the Robert Keenan Winery and the 4th consecutive vintage of “Reserve” Cabernet Sauvignon.

Clone 7 (81%) provides the tremendously rich fruit in this wine, clone 4 (14%) provides a wonderful chocolaty component to the mid palette, and clone 15 (5%) adds just enough Spring Mountain District depth and complexity to perfect the blend.
