Newton Vineyards 2015 Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Spring Mountain, Napa Valley, USA
Newton Vineyards 2015 "Spring Mountain" Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Spring Mountain, Napa Valley, California, USA
Newton’s Spring Mountain property was purchased in 1977 by the Newton family who quickly established 73 acres of vineyard and a winery within the 560 acre mountainous and heavily forested property. Now with a mature vineyard planted exclusively to Bordeaux red varieties and in combination with an extensive replanting program now bearing well well-established vines the property represents a treasure trove of wine potential.
Varities: The 2015 Spring Mountain District was a selection of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc from blocks 704,705,727,728,752,758, 760,767 with an average vine age of 25 years.
Vinification: Once harvested, the grapes were hand-sorted to inspect individual berries. The must is then fermented in separate lots.
Aging: Barrel-aged for 12 months before being blended and returned to barrel for further maturation.
1042 cases produced.
Terroir: The Spring Mountain property ranges in altitude from 500 to 1600 feet with a complex combination of both sedimentary and volcanic origin soil types presenting a diverse, moderately fertile, and well-drained medium perfectly suited to Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines are typically deeply complex with aromatic high notes complementing the richly textured and layered palate.
Distinctive red and black currant and blueberry fruit with a lifted perfume of violets, mint, soy sauce and dried thyme. Full-bodied with a grapey freshness and deeper dark flavors of mocha, red currant and asphalt. Rich with a silky texture, savory tannins and a long, cool finish.
