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.

  • Robert Keenan Winery Chardonnay Spring Mountain 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Pale yellow color. Just a hint of tropical fruit on the nose. Lots of acid on introductionLemon with unripened pineapple. Some metallic hint. Another crisp and refreshing summer sipping wine, but I am of the opinion that this one is difficult to recommend a meal pairing with this one. Read More

  • The OK process is at the very beginning. No way to tell Gregory-bot was not legit. Windows Server boy was different since a link could be seen. If we had an interactive Snooth admin group we could ask them to ban these two now. I used to do that with GDP all the time. Now, however, the request would be like shouting into a deep dark cave.
