“Flavors are expansive, deep and persistent”

Vineyard Notes

The Spring Mountain appellation lies above the town of St. Helena on the eastern slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains that separate Napa Valley from Sonoma Valley. The area is defined by small vineyards, often hand-tilled on terraces and sloping meadows, and wineries hidden from view among steep winding roads. Over the years, despite its limited space and remoteness, the Spring Mountain appellation has produced an abundance of wines acclaimed worldwide for an unmistakable profile. Unlike other mountain appellations, these wines have an intense flavor that leans more to dark red fruit than black, with an earthy minerality and unusually silky, balanced tannins.

Winemaking Notes

Richly aromatic, this wine shows initial aromas of cinnamon and spice leading to layers of dark red fruit. On the palate, the wine is structured and complex, with a core of ripe plums, black cherry and sweet raspberries framed by fine tannins and balanced acidity.

Ripe to the point of becoming candied, this is firm, rich and layered, with plum jam, cherry, anise and cedar notes. Fans out on the finish, where the flavors are expansive, deep and persistent. Drink now through 2024. 180 cases made.
