WSI94+ In 2018 we had perfect conditions on Spring Mountain. The color of the wine is a beautiful dark purple at the core with a crimson rim. Immediate dark chocolate and coffee jump out of the glass, as well as blackcurrant puree and fresh blackberries. Underlying elements of eucalyptus, gravel and pepper spice complement the licorice and nutmeg spice. This is a very lush velvety wine on entry. The dark berry fruit is very pronounced, with other flavors of peppercorn and mocha. The sizeable tannins are in a chalky complex form that are matched by the acidity and demand cellaring. This beautiful and substantial wine will age amazingly over the next 15-17 years (2035-2037). 100% Cab Sauvignon. 22 months in French oak, 97% new.
