Of all the mountain appellations, Spring Mountain probably has one of the more varied terroirs. The ocean bottom soils, volcanic rivulet soils, eons of biological mass, and an underground spring system that lends its name to this mountain make the appellation a place of constant discovery. Though this variability may seem challenging, it creates a consistency in the wines, which can be seen in the 2009 Spring Mountain with its orange blossom, depth of flavor, and red and black fruit balance.
