NVWE Notes: This Cab Franc vineyard is one of Napa’s best and 2012 is a terrific vintage. The nose is a complex layering of black cherry, red current, blueberry and black raspberry fruit married to loads of sweet-savory spice. On the palate, the wine is densely packed and beautifully focused, with fine concentration but no sense of heaviness. The finish is an ultra long panorama of classic Spring Mountain flavors, including notes of cherry, blueberry, red currant and black fig fruit married to dried herb, briar, licorice root, tobacco, cedar, baking-spice, black tea, bouillon and black peppercorn contrasts. It’s terrific now, yet is destined to improve for several years. 480 cases made.
