This is Spring Mountainrsquo;s reserve bottling, made from certain lots of wine that are set aside because of their quality and distinctive personality. Itrsquo;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.

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.

When Jac Cole came to Spring Mt. in rsquo;01 he blended the selection from 110 vineyard blocks within the estatersquo;s three contiguous vineyards. The blend of the best lots is mostly Cabernet with 8% Merlot and a touch of Petit Verdot. My first notes on this wine were all about structure: its refinement, balance and harmony. And when leads with complete integration, its bound to be good. Slowly, over the course of a day this opens to a spiciness like black puer tea. The fruit remains tight, black as plum skin, but generous in its depth and texture. It all hangs together in a supple whole, to cellar for ten years or more.

Winemaker's Notes:

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 year for Spring Mountain Vineyard. Elivette sets the standard.
