Spring Mountain Vineyard 2006 Elivette

The 845-acre estate located on Napa Valley’s Spring Mountain began as three wineries, starting with the original stone winery built by Charles Lemme in 1873, bought by the Schilling family in the 1890s, and two other significant estates: Chateau Chevalier and Miravalle. In 1974, the latter property became Spring Mountain Vineyard, whose present owner acquired the other two estates in the early 1990s. These vineyards contribute more than history to the label: The Spring Mountain Vineyard 2006 Elivette, a Bordeaux-style blend, derives its seductive personality from their soils. As in past vintages, this densely structured red is redolent of violets and ripe blackberry, and its exquisite palate, drenched in velvety black cherry, reveals subtler traces of chocolate and fresh nutmeg.
