Current Release Wines for Spring Mountain Vineyard

2015 Estate Pinot Noir

Retail Price: $65.00
Wine Club Price: $52.00

The 2015 Pinot Noir exudes the classic varietal aromas that we have come to expect from our picturesque six-acre vineyard at the top of the SMV estate. Subtle notes of cinnamon, chocolate, lavender and truffle enhance the bright fragrance of raspberry, cherry and blueberry. The entry is full and round leading to a supple frame and a bright, long finish. In its youth, decant for 1 to 2 hours before service.

2015 Vintage

The 2015 vintage was one of our earliest, bookended by cold, wet weather in the spring that impacted fruit-set and by a warm, dry ripening season in the fall. Crop size was smaller overall, but quality was excellent. We had very small berries and loose clusters that led to even ripening and intensely concentrated flavors. There was a great skin to juice ratio that favored high-quality tannin extraction and concentration. The wines from 2015 show a good balance between freshness and power.
