Highlights

  • Single lot from our majestically terraced Chevalier Vineyard Amphitheater Block

  • Perfect eastern aspect for morning sun and afternoon shade gives signature Spring Mountain acidity
  • Chevalier Amphitheater embodies the estate history and beauty in this age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon

A cult cabernet producer since the 1960s, Spring Mountain Vineyard has built a reputation for elegant, structured, long-lived wines. Today this privately owned, sustainably farmed vineyard remains devoted to cabernet and the complementary Bordeaux varietals that perform so well in its diverse mountain soils high above the Napa Valley. The estate vineyards date to 1873, complete with an unparalleled architectural legacy of restored 19th century wineries and caves, gardens in a terraced, storied landscape. The historic vineyard footprint includes three contiguous vineyards – Chevalier (1891), Miravalle (1885) and La Perla (1873). The estate wines that come from these historic vineyards express the attributes of Spring Mountain terroir: low yield, deep color, pure varietal character, concentrated fruit, round tannins and bright acidity. This single lot of Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Chevalier Vineyard ‘Amphitheater’, a majestic terraced vineyard block overlooking the 1891 Chateau. The wine is redolent with lush black fruit and balances the inherent mountain-specific characteristics that set it apart from any other. The Spring Mountain Vineyard produces 8,000 cases of estate bottled wine. Elivette is its signature red wine, crafted to be the finest expression of the vineyard and the vintage.
