Abundant aromas of cherry, raspberry and chocolate layer with floral notes and an array of spices - clove, cinnamon, black pepper and vanilla. Full-bodied, elegant and integrated on the palate, the wine delivers an ample mix of concentrated black and red fruit - berries, plums, and cranberries. Silky tannins support a mid-palate that has more layers than a mille-feuille. An elongated finish echoes the fruit and notes of chocolate and spice.

Spring Mountain Vineyard is an 850-acre estate on the eastern slopes of Spring Mountain. Over 225 acres of the estate are planted to vine, representing 135 distinct hillside vineyard blocks with many soil types, exposures and microclimates. Originally four individual 19th century Napa Valley vineyards, Miravalle, Alba, Chevalier and La Perla are now one vineyard producing exclusively estate grown wines. A substantial portion of the vineyard is planted in densities of over 4,000 vines per acre. Because of the diverse and challenging terrain, the vines are trained to the ancient gobelet form, a vertical training method invented in an earlier millennium by the Romans. Growing primarily Bordeaux grape varieties, the vineyard yields distinctive mountain wines that consistently display concentration, elegance and longevity.
