Keever Vineyards

Cabernet Sauvignon
Yountville

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • This wine was made from estate fruit from three small, rock-laden blocks that truly “rocked”
  • These blocks produce less than the estate’s other blocks with especially juicy and spectacular fruit
  • The vineyard is nestled in the hillsides west of Yountville and is made up of gravelly clay loam
  • The wine was aged in new French oak for 20 months and went through 100% malolactic fermentation

The Keever Family and renowned winemaker, Celia Welch, take great pride in producing wine of this caliber. Jim Barbour designed our Yountville vineyard in 2000 and Barbour Vineyard Management has farmed it ever since. It's a team effort of incredible estate fruit, gifted winemaking and tons of passion.

Winemaking Philosophy:
Much has been said about "terroir" over the last two decades, but exactly how to capture the flavors of a specific vineyard often proves a tricky balance. Harvesting on that perfectly-sharpened knife-edge between underripe (firmer tannins, less aromatic intensity) and overripe (jammy, dark, sweet fruit, but not site-specific) requires not only tremendous patience, but also a level of attention in the vineyard as well as in the winery.
My philosophy of winemaking involves developing gorgeous, full, complex and elegant wines that speak of a certain corner of Napa Valley. They sit gracefully at your table and compliment your cooking. They recall memories of a season and share those with you. They enchant you.
