Further North but with a similar situation one finds the rather broad ranging Spring Mountain District. With cooler daytime temperatures than Mount Veeder, these slopes range with-in the same elevations but their positioning results in almost twice the annual rainfall of Mount Veeder. As the air in Napa Valley warms and is drawn to the north, warm, moist air is drawn through a gap in the Mayacamas Range resulting in regular, cooling rainfalls. Not actually a mountain, this region is more of a broad high pass that straddles this gap between the Mayacamas and Diamond Mountain. These same air flows often contribute to evening fogs in the valley floor to the East which results, counter-intuitively, in warmer evening temperatures at higher elevations as this blanket of cool, damp air forces the warmer air up the slopes and into the valleys of the district. The production of the Spring Mountain District is modest, contributing a mere 2% to the Napa valley Total. With soils similar to the volcanic, seafloor Read more »

  • Keenan Cabernet Franc Spring Mountain Estate 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Very much a musty/viney nose. On the tongue you know this one is a brute. What black fruit may be detected by the tip of the tongue is there is swept away by earthiness and tobacco or dark chocolate flavors as the wine passes farther along the tongue and palate. Pair this one with your biggest beef roast meals. Read More
