Intense and concentrated with dark fruits, black cherry and boysenberry integrate plum, cherry and raspberry. Layers of oak, thyme and lavender round this profile out. The wine is still bright and youthful with plenty of tannin to support the fruit and age this wine for the next 15 years or more.
Spring Mountain Vineyard is an 845-acre estate on the eastern slopes of Spring Mountain in Napa Valley where austere soils produce extremely low yields of intensely flavored, long-lived wines. Only 225 acres are planted to vine, representing 135 discrete vineyard blocks with multiple soil types, exposures and microclimates. The privately owned estate is comprised of four historic vineyards first planted to vine in the late 1800s. Only estate bottled wines are produced.
