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.
A lot going on here
Deep red. Blueberries! on the nose. Dusty with minerality and grass on the palate. Long finish. A very complex and nuanced wine. Am buying more today.
Nice wine if not as full bodied as the Napa cabs. Easy to drink and great with food
This wine pours beautifully in the glass, and is an outstanding Cab. This instantly became a house favorite, and I will certainly purchase again!
Not as good as other Napa cabs from CH but at $25 still a good value. If you like oak, you will probably like this one.
Let It Age a While
We liked this Cab, but think it will become better with a little age.
Very smooth, and delicious!
Great for everyday wine
Not up to the standard of many CH nap AP valley cab but overall a great drink for everyday meal
This was a nice Cabernet Sauvignon. It does not hold up to black label cabs as others noted, but then again, it is not a black label wine, and it costs less. That said, it is a good wine for a fair price, not a great wine for a bargain.
This is an excellent Cab, we let it decant a while and thoroughly enjoyed it with our prime rib dinner.
Deep, dark and dry Cabernet
This cab is a deep red color with a dry dusty mouthfeel. It is medium weight with a lot of character. Nothing mushy or bland here. We ‘ve ordered it several times and we will do so again.
