High on the slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains separating Napa and Sonoma, the tiny Spring Mountain District AVA is known among Napa Valley insiders for producing some of the most collectible wines in North Coast wine country. Here, a number of local wineries have a reputation of being run by eccentric owners who haven’t changed much about their wines in decades – folks who couldn’t care less about the latest style of winemaking that the critics consider en vogue.
Lot 750 is one such example, offering something we rarely see on our Napa treasure hunts these days – a showcase of terroir. Sourced from a historic family estate with vineyards planted on the steep rocky slopes on the east side of Spring Mountain, the wine is a focused, concentrated Cab that was crafted with a level of restraint – fruit was picked early before becoming overripe, and the taste of the land is fully apparent. With a cellar-worthy tannin structure and relatively low ABV (by current Napa standards), all indications are this wine has a graceful long life ahead of it.
