Today’s featured wine hails from Grand Napa Wines and boy, did we win big with their extraordinary 2009 Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.

This wine is simply extraordinary - and very, very elegant.

Leather and spice and dark fruit on the nose, with raspberry preserve, blueberry, plum, supple leather, pipe tobacco, spice box, licorice and subtle black pepper.

Flavors perfectly echo the nose, with the addition of graphite, plum skin, cedar, and flint.

This very highly recommended wine is a ready-to-drink delight that will continue to age elegantly for the next several years. Be careful, though. We think that once you taste your first bottle, you won’t be able to resist drinking the rest.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep garnet hues, with a glinting ring of mulberry topaz at the rim of the glass.

Smell:

Raspberry preserve, blueberry, plum, supple leather, pipe tobacco, spice box, licorice and subtle black pepper.

Taste:

Flavors perfectly echo the nose, with the addition of graphite, plum skin, cedar and flint.

Finish:

Initially full and intense with bold black fruits that coat the palate. As these slowly fade, earthy flavors encroach, along with a plush, slightly chewy dryness that spreads across the palate.

Pairing:

Think big with this one. Like a charred steak with chimichurri sauce and a side of roasted veggies with whole clove garlic.
