Fife Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District Reserve 1995

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

The nose here is still somewhat dominated by sweet oaken spice though the overall impression is refined and even leaning towards the earthy side of things. In the mouth the fruit is still front and center with a big sweet and obvious attack that is followed by a blanket of ripe tannins that can use some time to resolve. At the moment this is impressively youthful with a grapey, chocolatey personality that makes it a touch clumsy. A bit puppy like but still very good 87pts

Fife Vineyards:
Fife Vineyards is a small, family-operated winery producing wines that express their terroir and a European sensibility. They are food-friendly wines based on red Bordeaux, Rhône and Zinfandel varietals. We strive to avoid over-ripeness, excess oak and high alcohol, which we believe would mask the unique terroir driven flavors of our wines.
