Sojourn Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2011 vintage of our Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon was produced from grapes grown along the mountain tops above St. Helena. The soils are primarily volcanic and the location is wild, literally. Imagine a drastically varied terrain, extreme slopes, towering redwoods and all the critters and creatures that enjoy living in such extreme conditions. The vines grow on steep southeastern facing s lopes that produce concentrated flavors and bold mountain structure. The cool 2011 vintage resulted in a polished wine with pure mountain fruit character with hints of perfume and sweet vanilla from the French oak. It has seamless tension between the aci d and fine - grained tannins, providing a lively pallet and good length on the finish." -Winery

"Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Layered aromas of currants and red cherries with cranberry-like tanginess and creamy oak adding in both range and depth make the early going in this wine


Vintage: 2007 11/12/2010

Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Layered aromas of currants and red cherries with cranberry-like tanginess and creamy oak adding in both range and depth make the early going in this wine, and its supple yet balanced palatal impressions provide a comfortable, inviting platform for the ripe and rich flavors that follow on. It gets slightly tight and taut at the end and could age for a bit.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
