Sitting high above Napa Valley on the eastern slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains, the incredibly small Spring Mountain AVA is one of the last outposts of Napa Valley whose wineries are still owned by small families. Known for producing some of the most collectible wines by Napa Valley insiders, the cool climates and high elevation of Spring Mountain are perhaps more responsible than any other Napa hillside for creating the mystique of "mountain grapes."
Sourced from one of the pioneers in Spring Mountain District, today's release is first-class wine and a textbook example of what the region is capable of producing. We acquired just under 200 cases of this wine, so if a classic, $75/bottle Spring Mountain Cabernet is on your gift list, it’s time to treat yourself.
Maybe I've become spoiled over the years with the incredible value of Cam's wines, but this is one of the more exceptional ones. As others have said, give this one some time to open up and then "boom", it's all there: broody dark fruit, incredibly balanced oak - just an incredible archetypical big Napa cabernet! Glad a bought a few bottles to sit on...this one's amazing....
This wine is a wonderful wine that needs a minimum 2 hour decant to show its true colors. Be patient, let it open up and enjoy.
Nice young cab
Nice young cab. It was definitely better on day two, but still good out of the bottle. Probably a better value for those that have the patience to buy it and cellar it. For those who do not want to wait, CH has better wines with a better price point.
Unique wine - The vanilla notes are prominent with nice full body and dark fruit.
Recommend at least an hour decant - continues to drink well the 2nd day.
Dark and tannic
Opens with dark glass coating colors and tannins. Immediately smells of oak and black fruits, but the wine is tight. It needs time and I think will merit 4.5 stars in a year or so.
Give it some more time
Sampled this Spring Mountain Cab, and it will - in time - be excellent. Very good now, and certainly a good value, but I think this one needs a little patience. I love Spring Mountain Cabs, but typically so expensive and harder to find on the east coast - thanks CH!
I was tempted to give up on this Cabernet, but it was better on day 2 when more fruit appeared. Still, I could not shake the feeling that this wine was made from grapes that did not measure up and were cut from the final blend of the 2014 release.
I was disappointed.
This is definitely not a great value. A disappointing release from CH.
Just coming together
Dark and closed and very tannic when first opened we actually recorked this big red and came back to it the next day. It had softened and there was more fruit up front. The nose was more loosening also. In a year this is going to be a wonderful wine, probably a great wine.
Dark, moody, tannic, young
Long lasting black berries on the palete
Trying to buy more because we can't stop to save it
