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.
We ordered a case of this one. Love the dry-fish smoke and vanilla. Very nice
It is nice to have a dry cab on occasion. Would have bought more. CH reds don't disappoint
We opened this bottle one night finished the next, not one of our favorites, found it too dry for our taste. We enjoyed of course, but not one we would reorder.
Nice and rich
Beautiful rich colors with the flavors to match.
Was ready to buy more. I love the Napa wines.
Enjoyed this cab, pretty dry on the finish. slight smokey.
Full and silky
Beautifully full in the mouth; deep and silky. Delicious for sipping and with pizza!

Perhaps I didn't let it breathe long enough. Nice but not great
Waited and waited and we decided to try one for my Birthday. After a 90 minute decant we were greeted with a deep, gorgeous color and full bodied and flavored winner. Fortunately have a half case in the wine refridge so can let the rest rest longer. This will only improve with age and rate even higher than 5 stars!
I found this wine to be tart and it didn't have a good finish. It wasn't terrible but I won't be ordering this again.
Very Very Good
We liked this wine, and found that it was best after it had the opportunity to breathe for about a day or so. Not as great (to us at least) as some of the others, but still very very good. However, the bar has been set so high at CH Wine, that we are slicing the distinctions quite fine. A great value, but not the best value (to us at least) of the CH Wines.
