The Spring Street Cabernet Sauvignon is fully purple in the core with light purple on the rim. Deep raspberry tart and pomegranate concentrate fill the glass. Underpinning elements of crushed violets and charred cedar are also apparent. The wine has a wonderful viscosity to the palate, where wonderful flavors of cola, black licorice and black cherries emerge. The tannins are present but not overbearing, while soft acidity eventually appears.
This is a great representation of bringing together two small family vineyards to make one great wine that should age nicely over the next 10-11 years.
