Dense violet overlaid with deep brick red notes. Nose of raspberry and white pepper. Body exhibits fresh forest air and dark plummy fruit, and finishes roundly with wood and spice notes.
Check this out if you enjoy the classic vintages of Gruaud-Larose: Itandrsquo;s funky and complex, with the same kind of fat that a St-Julien would boast. Initially herbal and tight, this opens into powerful complexity, the tannins almost lamby in flavor, the fruit a deep well for cassis. The 225 acres of vines at Spring Mountain Vineyard were orginally planted in the 19th century by four separate owners, now provided a range of elevations and expositions for this wine.
Rich and vibrant in acids and tannins, this Cabernet feels like it was obviously grown in a good place. It flatters the palate with blackberry and black cherry flavors, with a currant ripeness accentuated by 80% new French oak. Forward and elaborate now, it doesnandrsquo;t seem like an ager despite the tannins, so drink nowandndash;2013.
