Spring Mountain Vineyard 2002 Elivette

    Tasting notes: Voluptuously thick, a powerful, shadowy bordeaux blend that is almost like Turkish coffee with luxurious berry and black cherry, dark chocolate, and big yet velvety tannins. Worth knowing: Spring Mountain Vineyard’s 800-plus acres comprise some of Napa Valley’s most historic 19th-century vineyards, the potential of which winemaker Jac Cole and vineyard manager Ron Rosenbrand have brilliantly realized.
