This wine starts with bright fruit and cocoa powder on the nose. The palate has an incredibly soft entry followed by dark fruits and rich tannins. The word for this wine is balance, as neither the juicy fruit nor the soft tannins dominate.
The 2009 Spring Mountain District Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a composed of select blocks of our two estate vineyards. These blocks were picked between October 6th and October 30th 2009. The wines were fermented on skins for an average of 16 days and then aged in barrel for 22 months. The wine is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petite Verdot. The wines were bottled August 2011.
Rich and meaty, with a dense, gutsy core of loamy earth, dried herb and berry, and tobacco. Firm and structured, harboring compact mountain-grown fruit that will reward cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2024.
