Spring Mountain Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District 2008
We drank the 2006 at the numbers June 11,11 great wine
good, but I'm really surprised at the price; it's not worth it.
Soft tannins, minerality. Drinking surprisingly well now, but will benefit from time.
Just an amazing wine, after the years and how it is holding up.
External Reviews for Spring Mountain Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District
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.
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.
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.

A very good effort from this long established winery on Spring Mountain, the dark ruby-hued 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon offers hints of dried herbs, underbrush, red and black currants, and wet rocks. This spicy, medium-bodied Cabernet can be consumed now... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2003 Spring Mountain Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
The aromatics of this wine possess an intriguing fusion of cassis chocolate and berry pie filling with hints of violet and mint. The palate is full-bodied and lush; chewy tannins and flavors echo bittersweet chocolate and blackberries. The finish is all satin and silk with flavors that linger like a fond memory. This mouthfilling substantial wine with concentrated flavors is poised to age beautifully over time yet fully enjoyable now.
