RATINGS

94+ Robert M. Parker Jr.

...opaque purple color is followed by a big, layered mouthfeel with intense richness suggestive of creme de cassis, charcoal, tobacco leaf, and hints of truffles and asphalt...

91+ Stephen Tanzer

..Juicy and vibrant but primary and tight, with a medicinal reserve to the black fruit, licorice and mineral flavors. Precise and fine-grained but youthfully folded in on itself. Finishes with suave, mouthcoating tannins and lovely lift..

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, Spring Mountain District

Spring Mountain AVA is above the town of St. Helena on the eastern slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains. There is no actual Spring Mountain, but the name has traditionally been used for the area, which includes many streams and springs. Spring Mountain was awarded appellation status in 1993 and it includes about 1,000 vineyard acres. Vineyard elevations are high, from 400 to 2,600 feet above sea level. Because of the altitude of most vineyards, which are above the fog line, mornings become warm earlier than vineyards on the valley floor, though the afternoons are cooled by maritime winds. The result is an exceptionally long growing season. Cabernet Sauvignon is the most frequently planted grape by acreage, followed by Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
