Notes & Pairings
This is Jack and Johanna's first ever Cabernet Sauvignon. They have worked with the variety in many ways throughout their 12 year career in Napa but strangely had never actually made the wine for Keep. When some fruit from the Bengier Vineyard (formerly Vare Vineyard) became available, they jumped at the chance. Contrary to most Napa Cabernet sites this Vineyard typically ripens at lower sugar levels with delicious fruit concentration. This wine is a nod to the classic Cabernet that we have had the opportunity to taste from the 1970’s and 80's from Napa. 80 cases produced.
