Wine Advocate 94 points - Remarkably, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain might even eclipse the 2006 - in fact, I think it will. Dense purple to the rim, the wine displays powerful blueberry, blackberry, plum, and truffle notes in the aromas, sensational flavor concentration, a strong floral underpinning, impressive purity, a multi-dimensional, layered, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a fabulous finish. This is a very exciting wine that should drink well for 20-25 years. (Dec 2009)
The Crowley Vineyard on Spring Mountain vineyard is a perfect fit for our mountain Cabernet portfolio from the highest elevations of Napa Valley. Topping out at nearly 2,000 feet overlooking the Valley, this vineyard’s rocky volcanic soil, varied hillside exposures and contours, and moderate climate combine to produce densely concentrated winegrapes. Located on the northeastern slopes of the Mayacamas range above St. Helena, Spring Mountain is cooled by afternoon breezes that flow from the nearby Pacific Ocean, creating moderate daytime temperatures and cooler nights which allow grapes to ripen slowly without pushing high alcohol and sugars.
