Spring Mountain Vineyard

Estate Bottled Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot & 3% Malbec, deep Ruby with aromas of berry fruits with spice, herb and earthy notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry, ripe cherry, fig and blueberry with currants, cacao, pepper and earthy notes. Fine soft tannins, good structure, long finish, great mouthfeel, ending with cedar, fruit and earthy character. Wonderful! Very Nice. — 6 days ago

Way beyond what I expected for a 2011. After 11 years this beauty is fully resolved, velvety and absolutely delicious. Purchased on release, I’m sure glad I waited this long. It’s in its perfect drinking window. Rk — 6 days ago

Smith Madrone

Spring Mountain District Riesling 2016

This is a very tasty Riesling from Napa Valley.

Medium-bodied with medium-plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

This 6 year old is showing lemons, yellow apples, petrol, plastic, cream, earth, minerals, herbs, sea salt and white pepper.

I had it a year ago, and it seems like it is less fruit forward now.

Spicy and entertaining. Good by itself or with food. Showing nice complexity and better when not too cold.

12.8% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Further improved on day 2.
Lots of oak treatment on the nose and palate. Tannins are still quite robust, along with the acidity. Best Lamborn in a while. Drink or hold this vintage.

I love this wine !!!@Ron R

Diamond Creek Vineyards

Volcanic Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 1987

Remarkable how this has held together considering the abuse the bottle when through. A light green quality runs through suggesting it may have been quite angular in its youth. A very delicate black fruit quality and rich tannins still running through. — 2 days ago

Barnett Vineyards

Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

This wine has a deep purple hue with developing notes of crème de cassis, blackberry, black cherry; also pencil shavings, cedar, tobacco, toast, clove, black olive, forest floor, and leather.

Tannins are fine grain, velveteen, and smooth.

It’s not a fruit bomb, but it’s a pop-and-pour; delicious today with potential for further aging.
