Our vineyards on Spring Mountain are impossibly steep and rocky, with a southeastern exposure to ripen the tiny grape cluster s. Winemaker Craig MacLean has hand-crafted our Bordeaux-styled Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Flavors of black cherry and cassis are couched in toasty oak.

Wine AdvocateThe 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain Estate offers an attractive but restrained bouquet of creme de cassis, licorice, crushed rocks, subtle oak, and background cherry scents. A superb, elegant example of what can be achieved in California, it possesses a Bordeaux-like personality superimposed upon the wonderful ripeness and purity of Napa Valley mountainside fruit. This beautifully made, structured Cabernet will benefit from 2-4 more years of bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020.

Wine EnthusiastCedar, chocolate and cassis abound in this surprisingly smooth and creamy mountain Cabernet. Immediately approachable because of its supple texture, yet firms up on the finish, suggesting midterm (5-8 years) aging potential.
