2016 CROWLEY VINEYARD SPRING MOUNTAIN DISTRICT CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$95.00

Crowley Vineyard Cabernet checks every box from top-level winemaking to a pedigreed vineyard and a passionate proprietor. Wineries like Barnett, Behrens Family, Sherwin, and Robert Craig have all sourced their grapes because of the fruit quality and biodynamic viticulture. Stephen Tebb makes their wine, and he spent the last ten years as Director of Winemaking for Robert Craig and specializes in Mountain Terroir.

The vineyard is at the top of Spring Mountain, where rocky, well-drained, red volcanic Aiken loam produces densely concentrated fruit. Stephen pulls from superior blocks and clones within the vineyard, and at the winery price of $95, it’s stunning.

Stephen crafts this wine using gentle and minimal handling, resulting in Crowley’s Spring Mountain Vineyard’s pure expression of the land. The 2016 release is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and spent 18 months developing in French oak barrels. The wine is rocking now and will also go the distance in the cellar.

Description

2016 CROWLEY VINEYARD SPRING MOUNTAIN DISTRICT CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Tasting Notes from Master Sommelier, “The Crowley Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 begins with a beautifully elegant nose including red cherries, ripe blackberries, crushed rock, spring flowers, with hints of pencil lead and gunpowder. The palate is intensely concentrated, with penetrating cassis, muddled berries, red currants, dried plums, and baking spices. It finishes with firm, dusty fruit tannins, intense focus, and great length. Drink now through 2035.” KEVIN VOGT 95 POINTS

*VIP Note: If you sip and savor bottles in the $100 range, and enjoy 100% Pure Cabernet Sauvignon, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Full Cases of this Gorgeous 2016 Napa Valley Spring Mtn Cab! (it’s a steal at this VIP Exclusive price)
