Spring Mountain wines are quite unique to their location with a lean yet powerful muscularity. At elevations above the fogline, the hangtime is longer which allows for structured and complex fruit. Add to that the volcanic soils and you have a wine displaying profound flavors.
Visually the wine appears dark cherry red in color with beautiful ruby hued edges. Aromas surge from the glass with currants, cranberry, dried herbs, leather and a hint of black licorice. A sip reveals an explosion of black fruit flavors at the onset; black cherry, blackberry, and boysenberry evolve into tertiary flavors of ripe plum, leather and tobacco on the mid-palate. The finish is medium in length with notes of coffee, black tea and earth. This wine is immediately enjoyable now and can age for five to six more years.
