About the Wine

Spring Mountain has lamented itself as one of the preeminent Estates in North America gaining a cult following amongst many wine industry pundits and amassing a reputation for producing some of the most well-lived Cabernet Sauvignons in the world! Historically, Spring Mountain has stayed away from major critics and the veneer of wine scores but that hasn't kept them from the spotlight. From Late Night with Conan O'Brien to White House Dinners, and Master Sommeliers showcasing their excellence on the Kelly Clarkson Show, Spring Mountain's reputation precedes itself. Constantly over-delivering during great and mediocre vintages, Spring Mountain is second to none; and if a Judgment of Paris style tasting we're to take place today? Only those who haven't blessed their palets with this unparalleled wine would be surprised. Top producer in a great vintage and a wine guaranteed to live on over the next 30+ years? The choice is yours.

Spring Mountain Vineyard manages 225 acres of masterfully cultivated vines on the eastern slopes of Spring Mountain in Napa Valley where austere soils produce extremely low yields of intensely flavored, long-lived wines. The privately-owned estate is comprised of four historic vineyards first planted to vine in the late 1800s. Only estate bottled wines are produced.

Tasting Notes: Red Wine. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is redolent with notes of blackberry, cherry, dark chocolate, and red currants laced with exotic spices and hints of cigar box. The palate greets you with a lush rendering of the same ripe red fruit and dark cocoa. Balanced with a long, firm finish, this Cabernet develops multiple layers on the palate while fully coating the mouth.
