2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Retail Price: $100.00

Inviting aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant and plum are accented by notes of violet, black olive and a hint of madrone. Dense color suggests its mountain origin and the palate echoes the aromatics along with flavors of peppercorn and Bay. The wine has a gentle entry and a balanced mid-palate, the result of 18-20 months in French oak. At this stage in its development, the wine shows impressive structure and potential. Firm tannins and signature Spring Mountain acidity provide shape and structure to the wine. This vintage will age well over the next several decades.

The 2014 vintage was a great year for Spring Mountain Vineyard. Continued drought conditions accelerated the phenological stages in the vineyard, which led to an earlier than normal harvest, but the warm conditions allowed for excellent ripening. The 2013 / 2014 Winter was one of the driest on record, however, scattered rainstorms early in the growing season provided the vines much needed water as the early bud break was starting. Favorable weather during set allowed the vines to produce a healthy balanced quantity of clusters with small and concentrated berries. The harvest for the Bordeax varieties began on September 12th and continued through October 14th. The resulting wines show wonderful concentration and depth of flavor framed by a dense and fine tannin structure.
