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 »

  • BTW, Antinori bought some property on Atlas Peak with the idea he could grow Sangio there.  Didn't work very well, so they grafted over to, what else, Cab.  Atlas Peak generally hasn't carried the same weight as Howell, Veeder, Spring, Diamond and the other "mountain" sub-AVAs. Next big AVA will be Coombsville, where Meteor hails from.  It regul... Read More

  • Wow, Fox, I did not know that about Burgundy.  Very cool.Tonight I am returning to Spring Mountain: First impression is that this is a robust wine meant for a robust meal—e.g., a hearty beef stew on a cold winter evening.  Only a hint of currant fruit on the tip of the tongue.
