It’s fair to say this Spring Mountain standard-bearer is easily one of the greatest 2014 Cabernets we’ve tasted, a wine that oozes class and noble aromas of roasted earth, graphite, cassis syrup, new leather, and cherries. It has a savory, irresistible aroma that invites sip after sip. This wine, grown on steep, west-facing terraces from mature vines, is simply a knockout; there’s no other way to say it.
The Fisher family has the sort of vineyards that will cause a winemaker’s pulse to quicken – a vitally important advantage in a game where the conversation starts (and ends) with raw materials. From their gorgeous estate property on the Sonoma side of the Mayacamas range, to their Lamb vineyard in Calistoga, they have some magical land at their disposal. Winemaker Whitney Fisher and her team are farming these plots to exacting standards, and the results are some of the best wines in the Valley! You owe it to yourself to mix up a case of these fabulous wines.
