Wine Details

Impenetrably black in the glass, this Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cab Franc, and Petit Verdot blend leaps out of the glass with a yin/yang bouquet of spring flowers haloing blackberry, black cherry, and black currant notes framed in fresh-turned black earth. Sensing a theme here? This inky wine is still deftly balanced on the palate, with a supple entry and impeccably balanced tannins that are quite polite given the muscular extraction of this wine. With just a few minutes, the wine opens up to reveal a juicy mid-palate that finishes with blackberry, caramel, and black cherry top notes in an epic finish. A classic Spring Mountain wine that drinks great now but will age beautifully over the next 10+ years.

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 250 cases of this wine - a classic Spring Mountain offering that drinks great now with a decant but will age beautifully.

Great grilling wine. Decanted for an hour and this wine really opened up. Great fruit, a bit on the dry side, and very earthy. Would definitely drink again

Big wine dark, cherry and violets on the nose. Tannns, very dry, fleshy, touch of herbal flavors. Spices sweet on the nose. Young, needs time!!!

This was one of our club selections. We just enjoyed it with burgers. Too bad we cannot order more.

Would have loved to have grabbed a case of this one. Complex, delicious. Give it some time to open up. You will enjoy!

Patience is a Virtue

Ok people, there's something you always need to know before opening a bottle of wine: do I drink it right away or let it decant? Well, for this one, definitely let it decant! It's going to be bitter and tight at first, but if you let it sit in a decanter for 30-minutes or even 1-hour, this wine is DELICIOUS! Blends are tricky, but the key to enjoying this one is to be patient.

First of all, gave the wine a few weeks to "recombobulate" after shipping. Then, let it breathe so it could open up. It is a deep and delicious wine that continues to touch the senses after sipped. Am wondering how much the flavor will enhance with age. It is great now, but how will it improve in a few years?

Nice nose, but the wine never opened up to give much on the finish. Did not get the tannins that others have talked about. Didn't decant it, but did aerated and tried with/without food. To be fair, I will try it again, decant and let it open up a bit longer. For now, not a wine I will stock up on.

This was nice with some roasted pork and green chili stew we served up on a cold weekend. Solid wines come from Spring Mountain.

Should have decanted as Cameron recommended. Very full bodied and very dry.
The last glass was great after it had a change to breathed. Although I have liked some of the past Meritages better.

We enjoyed this one. Dark berries with a touch of earth. This was a great higher price point to give a try. Will be back for another
