    The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District is surprisingly open for the vintage and its provenance. It is the most accessible of the 2010 Cabernets I tasted from Robert Craig this year. Layers of dark red fruit, Chambord, cloves and mint linger on the subtle, perfumed finish. This is one of the more feminine 2010s in the lineup.

  • Robert Craig's ultra-premium winery is renowned for limited-production, hand-crafted Cabernet Sauvignons from the mountains and foothills of Napa Valley. A pioneer in the development of mountain sources, Robert was involved with The Hess Collection in the 1980s before embarking on his own winemaking project in 1990. The program includes Affinity, a classic Bordeaux-style Cabernet Sauvignon blend, and powerhouse Cabernets from Mt. Veeder and Howell Mountain appellations. These award-winning, structured and stylish Cabernets convey a unique personality derived from the soils, climate and varietal characteristics of each growing region. Robert Craig has been a pioneer in Napa Valley mountain vineyards since the 1980s.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
