Very dark with dark ruby edges, this Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon has a rich depth filled with red fruit, dark cherry, blueberry, and nicely integrated oak spices. It contains nuances of dark chocolate cherry truffle, cocoa powder, tobacco and bay laurel. The palette is reminiscent of red raspberry and cherry juice with firm yet resolved tannin structure and balance of body and acidity. A great example of a mountain Cabernet, with rich extraction of abundant flavors resulting in excellent depth.

Production Notes

The winter was one of the driest on record for the Napa Valley; however, when we did get rain, it came when the vines needed it most, promoting bud break and new shoot growth. The balance of the season was moderate to warm, the crop was abundant, and the fruit ripened about two weeks early on average. 2014 was a wonderful harvest yielding great wines with immense depth of flavor.
