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.

Style: Full, Bold

Flavors: Blackcurrant, Blueberry, Oak

Cam Confidential
Sourced from two rocky, steeply terraced vineyards both about 1000 feet up the mountain. Lot 502 is from one of the best vintages we’ve seen on Spring Mountain since 2008. 2012 was not just a high quality vintage but high quantity, resulting in just a wee bit of extra wine available where often there is none. It’s been quite some time since we’ve had a Spring Mountain Cabernet. Along with Howell Mountain, Spring Mountain sets the bar for what is considered “mountain fruit” in California, so enjoy this incredible deal while you can!
