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

First night. Dark berries and spice on the nose. On the palate, dark fruit, clove, and spice with a dry, tannic finish. In fact left a chalky taste that I dont remember from my previous taste.Second night. Dark berries and spice on the nose. On the palate, dark fruit, chocolate, and spice. Again after a few tastes that dry, tannic finish returned. The finish was otherwise brief with only a lingering sensation of chalky residue. We did not have food with the wine either night. We suspected that this would counterbalance that chalkiness.
