July 18, 2014 - Deep-to-opaque crimson/ruby, this Spring Mountain Cabernet shows restraint but reveals enough intensity to divulge the fact that it is indeed derived from mountain fruit. Minerals, black currants, dried herbs and spice aromas are followed by similar flavors on the full-bodied palate. Freshly acidic and with substantial chewy tannins, the wine manages to seamlessly integrate its alcohol (14.1%) while at the same time carrying the flavors through the middle. Although lengthy, the finish carries substantial tannic grip. I would recommend ageing this wine for a couple of years in order to let the tannins finish their quarrel with the fruit. Thereafter, it should provide pleasure for at least another decade. Drink 2016-2026.
