Food Pairings for Spring Mountain Vineyard Red Bordeaux Blend Spring Mountain District Elivette
Our 2002 vintage Elivette is a deeply hued blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The aromas are a heady complexion of raspberries, blackberry jam and dark chocolate with nuances of kola and dark spices. Over 22 months of aging in French oak has softened the tannins and shaped the wine into a lush and textural delight. Loaded with a concentration of jammy fruit and hints of black licorice, it is an opulent expression of our Bordeaux varieties as they come to full ripeness on the slopes of Spring Mountain. The full bodied and redolent nature of this wine begs to be enjoyed immediately, but its shape and structure describe a wine that won’t reach its peak for another 10 years.
