Lot 278 represents the great diversity of the Spring Mountain District. The wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc, Merlot and Petite Verdot from established vineyards at varying elevations planted along the slopes of western Napa Valley. With plenty of sun and well drained soils, Bordeaux varieties excel here, creating wines with intense aromas and firmly structured tannins. Lot 278 is an outstanding example of the appellation's potential.
