OG N.25 2018 Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 12-bottle case SHIPS OCT. 12
Classic Spring Mountain hillside Cabernet Sauvignon! Sourced from one of Napa Valleys more impressive (not to mention naturally low-yielding) vineyards, this Cabernet Sauvignon retails well north of $75/bottle and has mid 90-point scores from either the Wine Spectator or Wine Enthusiast for the 2014-2016 vintages. This is an incredible deal at $18/bottle.
The dense color powerfully suggests its mountain origins. Graphite and violets halo perfumed cherry notes and a beam of pure raspberry fruit framed against savory, earthy tones of rocky clay, crushed rock, bell pepper, and seasoned oak. Blackberry and leather come out with air. Smooth and sophisticated on entry with elegant mouthfeel and subtle fruit framed against firm yet refined mountain tannins on the finish. Structure and elegance abound in this well-proportioned Cabernet weighing in at 14.2% alcohol . Drink now with a good decant and over the next 20 years.
