he new Spring Mountain Vineyard was once three separate properties each with its own vineyard and winery: Spring Mountain Vineyards (Miravalle) 257 acres, Chateau Chevalier (Chevalier) 120 acres, and Draper Vineyards (La Perla) 435 acres. The upper most property on the estate, La Perla, was founded in 1873 by Charles Lemme and expanded by the Schilling Spice family. Originally 285 acres it had the first Cabernet Sauvignon planted on Spring Mountain. The old winery remains today along with much of its original equipment and horse drawn carriages and wagons. Immediately below La Perla, and eventually added to it was the first vineyard planted by Fredrick and Jacob Beringer in 1882. These terraced hillsides were planted in a wide assortment of grape varieties to support the Beringer brothers fledgling winery. Adjoining to the north of the Beringer vineyard was a Frenchman, Fortune Chevalier, whose stone winery, Chateau Chevalier, was making wine in 1891. And finally, next door to Chevalier was Tiburcio Parrott who grew olives, citrus and grapes. Parrott built a grand home on the estate which he named Miravalle. Read less

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.
