1997 Spring Mountain Vineyard "Reserve" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1045309 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Another wine in what we have come to call the 'black-beauty' style. It has heavily toasted oak, espresso, black cherry and menthol aromas and flavors. The fruit seems subdued here, but the wine is nevertheless well integrated, with a full mouthfeel and long finish. Inner quote mark (11/2000)

Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This cuvee of 41,832 bottles possesses a Bordeaux-like austerity, as well as abundant quantities of sweet cassis, cedar, and spice notes in the complex bouquet. The dark ruby color is followed by a dense, concentrated wine with an emphasis on elegance and symmetry as opposed to power and flamboyance. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2000)

K&L Notes

When Spring Mountain Vineyard was established in the early 1990s it combined four separate properties--La Perla, Chevalier, Alba and Miravalle--and a lot of Napa Valley history. It also quickly established itself as the source of some extremely age-worthy wines.
