Lot 584 2014 Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

Lot 584
2014 Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

Under 200 cases of Cabernet from one of Napa Valley's pioneering mountain producers.
Another darkly extracted 2014 vintage Cabernet here. It explodes out of the glass with white flower, whiskey barrel, and a crushed red rock and fruit amalgam framed by smoky oak and blackberry. Very complex and well delineated at this point, thanks to the extended time in barrel. Rich and ripe on the palate, with elegant fruit riding a wave of chewy tannins in a long and persistent finish. This is drinking deliciously right now and opens up fairly quickly, but as with any young Cabernet, a little bit of air really gets this wine singing.
Cam Confidential

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.
