Spring Mountain Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
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: "Features black currant, blackberry and boysenberry reduction flavors that are tightly coiled for now, carried by well-embedded acidity and racy graphite notes. The long finish pumps out fruit, with extra anise and sweet tobacco elements checking in. This should evolve well in the cellar. Best from 2022 through 2040." Jun 2020
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.
