2019 Rattlesnake Cabernet Sauvignon
The color of the 2019 Rattlesnake is near black. The nose is powerful, a myriad of flavor abound from the glass; blackberries, vanilla beans, crushed violets, toffee, anise, dark roast coffee, cocoa and much more. Under these bigger aromatics there is amazing volcanic minerality. The full viscosity of the wine causes a velvety sensation in the mouth. More dark fruit springs forth on the palate surrounded by dark chocolate and caramel. The tannins are very chalky and firm, more serious tan previous vintages. The acidity is balancing and reserved, for Spring Mountain. This concentrated complex vintage will reward people with the patience to age for 17-18 years (2038-2039).
