Amazing wine, so alive and integrated. Perfumed and balanced with great harmony and length. Classic Napa mountain cabernet profile, richly textured but still maintaining structural posture and elegance. Seems like it could keep going too. Love the depth and core of fruit it still has

A blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc & 3% Malbec, aged for 22 Months in 60% new French oak, 1,810 cases made. Deep Ruby with developing aromas of red and black fruits and notes of oak, cacao and sweet spice with slight floral notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry, black cherry and fig with some black pepper, cinnamon and nutty earthy tones. Fine soft tannins, good structure, long finish, more ready to drink than other recent vintages, ending with great mouthfeel and spicy fruit character. Wonderful! Very Nice. Tasting Sample.

Outstanding, drinking well starting to develop tertiary aromas flavors! Tasting Sample.

Pam’s birth year wine. Still plenty of complexity to enjoy. Talking about both my wife and the wine.

Another 4th Friday for the books! Insane pulls this month to follow up the most epic month (April) that we’ve ever had!

Starting to fade a bit, which is a bit surprising for a mountain cab. Not over the hill though. Leather and cherry, highlighted by freshly squeezed blackberries and herbal nuances.

Fruit still well in-tact. Completely resolved. Very high fill, pristine bottle. Complexity fell just shy of making this an absolute treasure.

Still youthful, tannin and acidity well integrated. Really consistent portfolio from Spring Mountain.
