THE MERCHANT'S MARK
96+ / 100
The 2015 Spring Mountain "Estate" Cabernet is unbelievable! High-mountain fruit yields stunning cedar notes, tobacco leaf, cassis, leather, crushed shale, and menthol, all of which integrate with the wine's chewy tannins. We've waited years for this wine to come back to the market. This is a true California Cabernet: well rounded fruit, structured, graceful but with palpable tannins and notable yet complementary acidity that ties it all together.

"Sports an intense and pure beam of raspberry and cassis flavors, flanked by sage, incense and black tea aromas and backed by mouthwatering licorice snap notes and a bramble-filled finish. A beautiful example of mountain fruit. "
