Like any good book, this wine grabs your attention early. The story of this wine leads you down a mysterious path as the nose presents signs of dark berries, mocha and minerality. What will that lead to on the palate, you wonder? As you “read” on, you realize the story unfolds to reveal all you suspected and more - blackberries, black currant, plum, chocolate, coffee bean and a hint of spiced vanilla. A realization that two characters in your story go together: minerality and volcanic soils. The climax is always at the finish and it does not disappoint, revealing structure, lean tannins and balanced acidity. You feel fulfilled, but wanting more. Maybe you open another bottle in 6 months and enjoy the sequel.
Decanting is recommended for at least an hour to unlock all of the rich aromas and flavors this wine has to offer. Its youth makes it a great wine to follow over the years. Buy multiples and open them over time to follow its evolution.

RegionSpring Mountain District, Napa Valley, CA
Spring Mountain District is one of those unique wine growing areas; so unique it was designated it's own AVA (American Viticultural Area) due to its topography, soil and micro-climates. Familiar wineries on this mountain include Keenan Winery, Schweiger Vineyards and Terra Valentine.
Perched on the west side of the Napa Valley, the rugged hillside AVA of Spring Mountain was one of the first vineyard areas to be planted by the early settlers in the 1800s. Named for its many natural springs, it is endowed with forests and meadows of great natural beauty amid charming reminders of the historic past. Today it makes luscious and memorable wines of outstanding power, quality and elegance. Of significance are the volcanic soils and moderate summer temperatures that contribute to the lean, cellar-worthy style of wine.
