Napa Valley Red Wine
Spring Mountain vineyard. 1000 feet elevation. Vineyard is mostly white volcanic bedrock (tufa). “Blueberry and mulberry fruit intermixed with violets, incense and licorice. Striking aromatics followed by a full-bodied, dense, supple, multidimensional wine that should drink well for 25-30 years.” Mr Parker
Winery notes: “Our highest elevation site at 1100-1300 feet (Spring Mountain District), the Pluribus vineyard is always the last we harvest. A robust wine with dense, powerful black fruit, with cedar, roasted nuts, and powerful rich tannins providing a framework for the mid-palate density. Always our richest wine, the tradition continues in 2008 with an added sophistication and charm.” This has about 20% combined Merlot & Cabernet Franc.
"PLURIBUS expresses the character of an estate located at an elevation over 1,100 feet on the dramatic slopes of Spring Mountain. The name refers to the Latin word for many, and was chosen to signify the various facets involved in creating a fine wine: from the sun, soil, and climate of a vineyard, to the team of people who guide a wine through its evolution. A breathtaking mountainous 7-acre site with steep exposures to the north, east and southeast, the soil is comprised of volcanic bedrock. Pluribus, which debuted in the 2003 vintage, is defined as a bold, rich and concentrated wine; elements of dark plum, roasted coffee, and scents of cedar are inherent throughout the vintages."
SOIL: Decomposed volcanic material. Surrounded by a conifer forest. North and East Exposure.
