Newton Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Spring Mountain District|
Wild and complex with aromatic dried herbs, wet slate, mulberry, violets, boysenberry and asphalt. The palate is an exercise in restrained power and complexity. Vibrant inky fruits of black currants, mocha and tobacco provide the flesh. The hallmark is the richly textured, umami like incredibly long and intense carry balanced by fine gravelly tannins.
Complex aromas highlight the toasty oak. A woody quality shows on the palate as well, with touches of herb, anise and crushed rock. Best from 2018 through 2026. 617 cases made.
