2008 Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
Luscious black and blue fruits merge with ripe aromas of blackberry, cassis and cedar.
Richly aromatic with ripe aromas of blackberry, cassis and cedar, the wine shows really well in the nose even now with just a few weeks in the bottle. Luscious black and blue fruits merge with licorice in an elegant style supported by ripe tannins and framing acidity. The mid palate is predictably light on fruit given the short time in bottle, but comes up admirably on the finish with blueberries and licorice and well-integrated tannins. Note: While this wine is a 2008, it was just bottled in June, so do us (and yourself) a favor and wait a few months to open this wine!
Flavors: Blackberry, Blueberry, Cassis, Licorice, Tannins
