Winemaker Notes:

The grapes were sourced from our Estate and from neighboring York Creek, Crowley and Spring Mountain Vineyards. Each Vineyard block was fermented and aged separately for 12 months then blended followed by further aging. This wine was aged for a total of 22 months in French oak barrels with 65% new. The small additions of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot (3% each) brought up the spice and perfume in the nose and gave the wine a little more backbone and fuller color.

Tasting Notes:

Rich purple in its youth, the wines nose is full of fresh blackberries and ripe pomegranate. There are also aromatics of black pepper, mint and crushed flowers. The weight of the wine is very lush with ripe cassis and fennel on the mid-pallet. The tannins are chalky and well rounded with some bright mountain acidity to complement them. The finish is long and of creamed coffee. This year the wine is much more approachable in its youth, but the wine will age gracefully over the next 8-10 years (2009-2017).

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"Deep, dense and rich, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain oozes with character and sheer personality. Black fruit, tobacco, incense and crushed rocks are some of the many nuances that unfold as the wine sits in the glass. Tar, asphalt and licorice are layered into the sinewy, powerful finish. The 2010 is a fascinating and totally intriguing Cabernet. The blend is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot." – Antonio Galloni (Dec 2012)
