Winemaker's Notes

The nose opens with wild blueberries, tobacco, sweet cedar and notes of roasted espresso. Candied fruits and black licorice continue on the palate with supple tannins and a long, rich finish.

94 Points

"The 2005 Wurtele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is made from two distinct and designated blocks (I & J) on the top of the Wurtele Vineyard. The grapes were harvested in early to mid-October. The clusters were hand sorted followed by additional sorting of the must. Fermentation and extended maceration occurred over a 22-day period. Free run was kept separate from press juice and put into French oak barrels, 45% new and 55% once used. The wine was aged for 22 months and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

94"A gorgeous Cab, rich and complex, that perfectly shows the deep, strong tannins and impeccable structure of Spring Mountain, and Mayacamas Cabs in general. Perfectly ripe in black currants and tobacco, with exotic cedar and mineral overtones, it's beautiful now despite the tannins, but has the balanced stuffing to age effortlessly for a decade."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
