The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain is an attractive, nuanced wine, with striking aromatics, silky tannins and mid-weight structure. Lifted and light on its feet, the 2014 is quite pretty today. The flavors are decidedly bright and floral, while the expression of fruit tends towards the redder end of the spectrum. This is one of the most finessed wines in this range. The Spring Mountain Cabernets is a blend of fruit from several sites.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2034

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain has a similar dense bluish/purple color to the rim. It comes across as slightly more elegant, with floral notes dominating the wine’s aromatics. Violets and rose petals followed by blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as some crushed rock in a medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure, suave style characterize this wine, which was made form Spring Mountain vineyards such as Yverdon and Wurtele. Drink it over the next 25 years.
Anticipated maturity: 2016-2041
