2011 Spring Mountain Vineyard "Elivette" Napa Valley Red Blend (750ml)15 1 0 0
Evocative aromas of pure Cabernet, red cherry and brambleberry meld with dark chocolate and caramel. The entry is rich, the plentiful dark fruit gently shaped by round tannins and enlivened by bright acidity into a complete, balanced wine. There is a powerful density to the mid-palate that resonates and leads to a lingering finish. The elegance of this vintage of Elivette makes it a lovely food companion. Delightful now, but a few years of cellaring will reveal its ultimate beauty. Drink 2014 to 2029.
