This beautiful Cabernet greets you immediately with a deep purple core. The nose is very lifted with sweet flowers, ripe raspberry, ground pepper and black licorice. Classic Spring Mountain minerality is also apparent, with wet stone and graphite in the background. The wine has a decent viscosity to it, with brighter black cherry fruit, vanilla bean and crushed flowers coming though on the pallet. The tannins are well integrated but youthful, and the natural Spring Mountain acidity is well balanced with the rest of the wine. This is one to hold, since the wine will come together nicely over the next 9-12 years (2019-2022).
