One of the finest wines I’ve ever tasted from Sherwin Family Vineyards, this blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, from high on Spring Mountain, tips the scales at a relatively lofty 15.1% alcohol. The wine shows classic briary mountain fruit of blueberries, raspberries and the blacker currants found down on the valley floor. The wine has some minerality, beautiful spring floral notes, and a stunningly proportioned, full-bodied opulence and richness. This is a revelation in my tastings – kudos to the Sherwin family! It is still a relatively young wine, but certainly accessible. So I wouldn’t hesitate to drink it now, or 10-15 years from now. (RP)
Shows the tough, gritty tannins of this mountain appellation, indicating a wine that needs serious cellar time. It's very lush, with sunshiney-ripe flavors of blackberries, cherries, milk chocolate and anise. So rich and balanced, it should easily throw sediment and develop bottle complexities through 2018. *Cellar Selection*
Creamy oak and hints of dill give this a supple mouthfeel, yet the ripe currant, black cherry and wild berry fruit is elegant and stylish, gaining depth and momentum and ending with a long, intricate finish. (JL)
