2017 Napa Valley - Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
The Avid Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 is sourced from different vineyards on the eastern slopes of Spring Mountain District in Napa Valley where the soils in that region produce extremely low yields of intensely flavored, long-lived wines.
These old vines produce exceptional quality Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that were fermented in Stainless steel, filtered, and then aged in French and American Oak for an average of nine months.
The 2017 vintage is showing classic characteristics of Spring Mountain. On the nose, the wine shows cedar, cassis, tobacco, and vanilla. The palate presents notes of blackberry, plum and cocoa integrated with a layer of bright red fruits. Smooth oak and tannins balance out the fruit. This wine has great ageing potential.
