2008 Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
We sourced grapes for our 2008 Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon from a vineyard situated near the top of Spring Mountain. Planted in 1972, the vines are dry farmed and grow on steep, southern-facing slopes that produce, along with many of their famous neighbors, concentrated flavors and bold mountain structure. The 2008 vintage shows increased depth and character, with strong aromatics of blackberry and dark chocolate leading to ripe cassis and tobacco framed by broad shoulders and fine tannins.
