Our Spring Mountain District Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is the flagship wine of Terra Valentine spanning all parts of our two estate vineyards. A blend of Wurtele Vineyard Cabernet as well as Cabernet, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc from the Yverdon Vineyard and the Terra Valentine estate, the wine shows the character of all elevations and the four soil types of our estates. The estate fruit is de-stemmed and the whole berries cold-soaked for two days prior to fermentation. The wine spends an average of 21 days on the skins before the free-run wine is settled and racked to barrel for malolatic fermentation. The wine spends 22 months in French Oak barrels of which 35% are new which accents the trademark flavors of cocoa powder and black currant.

Wine EnthusiastThe wine is thoroughly dry, yet ripe and sweet in black currants and dark chocolate, and the tannins are strong, but ultra-refined. The addition of several other Bordeaux varieties brings complex layers that shift and change as the wine breathes. You can drink this Cab now, after a few hours in the decanter, or age it through 2022.

Wine SpectatorClove, bell pepper and green herbal flavors form the core of this firm, dense effort. Balanced, but lacks ripe fruit. Drink now through 2021. 2,761 cases made.
