Food Pairings for Fantesca Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain
Very mineral, still very strong and tannic. Can clearly age a few more years. Nose is still hot and tight. However underneath a great wine is evolving: black cherries and a touch of mint. Nice structure will allow it to age gracefully.
Great wine but will be better in a few years. Its a beautifully balanced and extracted mountain cab.
This wine shows a hint of rich, sweet, fresh herbs such as rosemary, thyme and slight pine. This herb note is subtle and offers a beautiful contrast and complexity to the rich fruit character. Webelieve it is due to the cooler climate of this appellation compared to other Napa AVAs. On the palate, the wine is impeccably balanced. It has soft, well integrated tannins that seem perfectly matched to the level of fruit to allow for 10+ years of aging.
