The 2015 vintage brought low yields but excellent fruit with intensely concentrated flavors. The wines from this vintage maintain a lovely balance between power and finesse. The Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon delights with raspberry and cassis entwined in sage, thyme and lavender. Wine Spectator called it “a beautiful example of mountain fruit,” and we couldn’t agree more. Give in another few years in your cellar for the best experience.
