“After revealing an unbelievably rare Spring Mountain Cabernet antique earlier this year, we’ve worked tirelessly to offer you a series of library vintages direct from the property. Provenance couldn’t better with each bottle in mint condition.”

Produced by a time-tested and globally respected Napa Valley winery, Spring Mountain’s 41-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon has never moved, and each bottle sports a pristine vintage label that was hand-applied three decades ago, essentially making today’s rarity an
exquisite piece of art that can be touched, opened, and enjoyed—especially enjoyed. We were astonished by its vibrant, youthful garnet core. While it may look like an antique on paper, it’s anything but in the glass. The palate suggests dried black and blue fruits with licorice, crushed volcanic rock, worked leather, old cedar box, and cigar ash. Like a fine well-aged Left-Bank Bordeaux, this effort showcases lengthy fine-grained tannins that finishes
elegantly bone-dry. Leave upright for a full day stored at cellar temperature. Decant for sediment. Bring on the Filet Mignon, creamed spinach, and potatoes au
gratin!
