Community Tasting Notes 9

    May 9, 2021 - Served at my parents. Dark ruby fruit - currants, blackberry, and dark cherry. Smooth mid-palate with a nice purity but a lighter profile than expected in light of the vintage and price point - medium body. Nice vibrant/rich flavors of dark berries, baking spices, chocolate/cocoa, and a mineral/graphite component. However, I thought the finish was somewhat lacking - a little short/not much depth. Decanted for one hour and drank over a couple more. Not much improvement with time but appears to be at a decent drinking point. In my opinion, a little better than the 92+ rating from WA at this stage. 100% cab.

    December 30, 2020 - Exceptional wine from Spring Mountain that is both muscular and elegant. Prominent oak and chocolate flavors. While the oak is there, it does not overwhelm the fruit. Bright raspberries, strawberries, cherries remind you this is a mountain bottling. Will be better with a few years for oak to integrate.

    May 6, 2020 - The wine looks ruby colored. The legs are medium. There is light sediment in the bottle. The body is medium/full. The wine has round texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has low acidity.

    April 9, 2020 - I've had this wine before but my wife and I paired it with a nice filet and the flavor is big and wonderful. Big, bold with a long finish and a beautiful color in the glass. I will definitely order more!

    November 15, 2019 - Dark chocolate covered blackberries, licorice, vanilla and herbs hit you in the nose and on the full-bodied palate. The wine is tannic, fresh and fruit-filled, but it's going to need at least 5 years to show its best.
