Cabernet Sauvignon

5 cases produced

Of all the 19th century vintners who grew grapes on what is now the Spring Mountain Vineyard, the most recognizable are the Beringer brothers, Tiburcio Parrott and Fortune Chevalier. However, the most forwardthinking was Charles Lemme, who planted Spring Mountain’s first Cabernet Sauvignon vines on his La Perla vineyard in 1870. Still the source of outstanding Cabernet, La Perla vineyard block 42, 1.4 acres at 1,600 feet in elevation, is the source of this lot. As is typical of SMV Cabernet, the wine delivers an abundance of bright red fruit with perfumed aromas, jammy and spicy notes with a velvety mid-palate, solid structure and elegant finish. The 2009 vintage embodies the concept “less is more”— the vineyard yielded less than one ton of fruit per acre. The vines were trained to the Vertical Gobelet method.
