2011 Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
The 2011 vintage of our Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon was produced from grapes grown along the mountain tops above St. Helena. The soils are primarily volcanic and the location is wild, literally. The vines grow on steep southeastern facing slopes that produce concentrated flavors and provide bold mountain structure.
The cool 2011 vintage resulted in a polished wine with pure mountain fruit character, aromas of berries and cassis, and hints of perfume, thyme and sweet vanilla. It has seamless tension between the acid and fine-grained tannins, providing a lively pallet and nice length on the finish.
