Sherwin Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Wine Spectator: The flavors are rich and pure, built around ripe plum, currant and cherry, with a dash of earth, spice and floral character. Firmly tannic. A highly successful mountain-grown wine that manages to smooth out the rugged tannins and provide a supple, polished texture. Best from 2006 through 2012. 740 cases made. (11/15/04)

We are pleased to announce the release of our 2005 Sherwin Family Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, our 10th vintage of Estate Cabernet. It’s hard to believe that so much time has passed. It seems like just yesterday that we were clearing the land, planting the vineyard, and dreaming of what has now become Sherwin Family Vineyards. As always, the 2005 vintage is made entirely from fruit from our 16-acre vineyard at the top of Spring Mountain. Comprised of 80 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 12 percent Merlot, and 8 percent Cabernet Franc, the wine was aged for 20 months in new French oak and then aged another six months in bottle prior to release. This wine shows the lush fruit and intensity of our mountaintop growing conditions, with hints of mocha and well-integrated tannins. 1,270 cases were produced. If you haven’t visited us recently, on your visit you will notice that Steve has been one busy guy. The outdoor fireplace and expanded patio at the winery are complete and our newest addition - the Bocce court - is ready for action. We have added a secure shopping cart to our website, and we are now able to take orders for our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon online. The next time you are planning a trip to Napa Valley, we hope you will visit us at our winery for some old-fashioned Spring Mountain hospitality. We are still open by appointment only, so give us a call, and we’ll get a date on the books. We hope to see you soon! Read less
