2012 Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
Dynamite juice from one of Napa Valley's high-end Spring Mountain producers.
Opaque purple in color, with beautifully pure aromas of blueberry and blackcurrant, joined by hints of wood smoke and anise. Dense and chewy on the palate, the rich fruit flavors are perfectly merged with ripe tannins in a long, albeit tightly wound, finish. Definitely decant this puppy. Lot 502 is big on structure, with plenty of backbone and very elegantly deployed French oak. The wine is considerably richer and bolder than your typical vintage on Spring Mountain, and is definitely a candidate for near and long term cellaring. Dynamite juice.
