 Cabernet Sauvignon ~ Spring Mountain District
2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
Spring Mountain District

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).

 Cabernet Sauvignon  ~ Spring Mountain District
2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
Spring Mountain District

Deep purple in its youth the young 2009 Spring Mountain Cabernet is refined in its purity of blackcurrant and pepper spice. Some black cherry and anise begins to become apparent, but the gravely rock minerality really starts to push through with a few swirls. Very round and lush on the mid palette, more cassis pushes though coated with pure vanilla bean and black licorice. The tannins are more sizable on this vintage, but the purity of the natural Spring Mountain acid balances it well. This is a cab that will show well in its adolescence, but will be amazingly showy with some patience in the cellar (2023-2025).

2005 Cabernet Sauvignon 'Cyrus Ryan'
Napa Valley

The wine exhibits a beautiful purple core and medium ruby rim with intense dark currant, black cherry and raspberry black olive on the nose. In addition, there is deep graphite minerality as well as cooking chocolate. Upon tasting the body is full and viscous, and the deep dark chocolate becomes really apparent. This is matched by blackberry and pencil lead. The structure of this wine will demand a minimum of 3 years aging but should continue to age gracefully over the next 10-12 years.

2012 Spring Mountain Merlot
Spring Mountain District

With a deep purple core the 2011 Merlot is deceptively bright in its youth. Fragrant raspberry and soft white pepper spice are balanced with sweet vanilla and deep fennel. After a few swirls of the glass black cherry and blueberry tart aromas emerge with some subtle gravel minerality. This year the mouthfeel is silky and lush with more of the same range of fruit as the nose, but with a larger degree of minerality. The tannins are moderately chalky without being overbearing. The wine finishes with dark cocoa and riper raspberry. This wonderful wine will age beautifully over the next 7-8 years (2019-2020).
