Spring Mountain, Napa Valley, California
87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Petit Verdot
This ever-popular Cabernet Sauvignon blend is back in league play! This is a deep, rich wine, saturated purple black in color with vibrant red edges. Expressive notes of cigar box, cinnamon, cassis and cedar lift from the glass, while elevated flavors of sweet, juicy, red fruits are supported by firm tannins and a welcomed acidity. The finish, right down the middle, is all chocolate cherry cordial. Nicely focused, this wine stays in the lane for the strike! 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate A blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Petit Verdot, the deep purple-black colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Spare Me has a nose of menthol, dark chocolate and meat with hints of underbrush and crushed rocks. The full-bodied mouth is rich, expressive and pure-fruited with firm, grainy tannins and a long finish.
