Tasting Notes:
Yet another Cellar Angels Exclusive Offer! This elegant wine was pulled from Terra Valentine’s Library Collection solely for this offer and won’t be found elsewhere. Aged in 50% new French oak, this Cabernet Sauvignon has excellent structure with its’ high tannin levels and acidity that make it perfect for aging. A very deep ruby in color with almost garnet notes, the color hints at what the wine will become. Drinking beautifully now with complex aromas and flavors of supple black fruit and blueberries blending with damp earth and hints of barnyard. Layers of bakeshop spice such as vanilla and clove lead to hearty herbal notes mingled with espresso, tobacco and cedar. With time this wine will only increase in complexity.

About the Vineyard:
Wurtele Vineyard was originally planted in 1990 and was purchased by the Wurtele family in 1995. Located on a central knoll at elevations of 600-1000 feet above sea level, this vineyard is fully exposed to sunlight and has various soil types that give the grapes unique characteristics depending on where in the vineyard they are grown. The fruit for this wine was grown on the north-facing slope with shallow rocky volcanic soil. These vines produce very concentrated fruit with excellent structure and deep color.

Accolades:

94 points- Wine Enthusiast
“A gorgeous Cab, rich and complex, that perfectly shows the deep, strong tannins and impeccable structure of Spring Mountain, and Mayacamas Cabs in general. Perfectly ripe in black currants and tobacco, with exotic cedar and mineral overtones, it’s beautiful now despite the tannins, but has the balanced stuffing to age effortlessly for a decade.”
