  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    ($90; cabernet sauvignon with 8% merlot and 3% petit verdot) Deep ruby-red. Aromas of currant, black plum, licorice and truffle. Dense, sweet and spicy but high-pitched, with notes of chocolate and truffle. Rather uncompromising young wine, finishing dusty and firmly tannic.

    A rich, smooth and seductive style that starts out with flashy toasty, smoky oak and leads to a ripe, slightly hot and intense wine with layers of currant and blackberry fruit that firms up on the finish, with a surge of tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

    The 2001 Elivette, which is again a Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend, is better than I remember it after bottling. Foresty black currant notes intermixed with some fresh sauteed porcini mushrooms, damp earth and a floral note are all noticeable in the impressive perfume. Medium-bodied, slightly more compact than the Cabernet Sauvignon, but displaying nice, sweet tannin and very good fruit, this wine should drink well for another 10-12 years.

Spring Mountain Vineyard was once actually three separate properties each with its own vineyard and winery: Spring Mountain Vineyards (Miravalle), Chateau Chevalier (Chevalier), and Draper Vineyards (La Perla).

Spring Mountain now produces several different varieties on the three estates for its many wines. These include Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, and Petite Verdot, which are used in their single varietal releases and in their renowned Bordeaux blend.
