Winemaker Notes

The debut of the Spring Mountain Vineyard Syrah! Aged carefully in our library over the years and not released to the public, the 1995 Syrah shows nuances of cranberry and herbs with hardy, earth tones.


The 1995 Vintage

Extreme weather patterns punctuated the growing season. Veraison was blessed by moderately warm days and cool evenings, which provided extended hang time. The wines have great structure and surprising depth.


Spring Mountain Vineyard

Originally four individual historic Napa Valley properties, Miravalle, La Perla, Alba, and Chevalier have now been combined to create an 850 acre estate of forest and vineyard on the eastern slopes of Spring Mountain overlooking the small town of Saint Helena. Over 225 acres of the estate are planted to vine, creating 135 separate hillside vineyard blocks each with its own unique soil, exposure, and microclimate. The vineyard is planted in densities of 4,000 vines per acre and trained to the ancient gobelet form, a vertical trellising method that was invented in an earlier millennium by the Romans.
