Spring Mountain Vineyard Red Blend Spring Mountain District Proprietary Red 2004

Member Review by Matchupichu:

Amazingly gripping and tannic wine, definetly needs to sleep for a while. Tasted at the winery, a very chewy mouthfeel, notes of coca powder, oak, and bunches of crushed dark fruit. great stuff, but needs to lay down for a decade to calm down

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

This is Spring Mountain's reserve bottling, made from certain lots of wine that are set aside because of their quality and distinctive personality. It's designed to be a long-lived wine of concentration, harmony and elegance. A near-perfect growing season gives this vintage exceptional depth, power and concentration, with rich, dark flavors that linger on the palate and finish with style and polish.

The growing season in 2001 was, dare we say, as close to perfect as it gets. This vintage gave us wines of exceptional depth, power and concentration with rich, dark flavors that linger on the palate to finish with style and polish. 2001 is a banner

A rich, smooth and seductive style that starts out with flashy toasty, smoky oak and leads to a ripe, slightly hot and intense wine with layers of currant and blackberry fruit that firms up on the finish, with a surge of tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2012.
