Belly up to this mouth-wateringly delicious Spring Mountain Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with a generous pour. We're really stuck on the meaty, wintery fare with the temps the way they are in the northeast, so we're dreaming of a slow-cooked Sunday beef stew with big chunks of carrot and potato. Word to the wise: it's great every day of the week. Or, make it a comforting lamb tagine with cinnamon and cumin over the starch of your choice. A new favorite of ours is soy-braised short ribs. The umami is off the charts, and perfect for the savory notes of this Napa Cab. Happy cooking winelovers!

Wine Spectator: "Sports an intense and pure beam of raspberry and cassis flavors, flanked by sage, incense and black tea aromas and backed by mouthwatering licorice snap notes and a bramble-filled finish. A beautiful example of mountain fruit. Best from 2022 through 2040. 4,030 cases made." Mar 2019

Winery: "Spring Mountain Vineyard is an 845-acre estate on the eastern slopes of Spring Mountain in Napa Valley where austere soils produce extremely low yields of intensely flavored, long-lived wines. Only 225 acres are planted to vine, representing 135 discrete vineyard blocks with multiple soil types, exposures and microclimates. The privately owned estate is comprised of four historic vineyards first planted to vine in the late 1800s. Only estate bottled wines are produced.

The 2015 vintage was one of our earliest, bookended by cold, wet weather in the spring that impacted fruit-set and by a warm, dry ripening season in the fall. Crop size was smaller overall, but quality was excellent. We had very small berries and loose clusters that led to even ripening and intensely concentrated flavors. There was a great skin to juice ratio that favored high-quality tannin extraction and concentration. The wines from 2015 show a good balance between freshness and power."
