The 2016 vintage at Spring Mountain Vineyard is one of the best of the decade. Ideal conditions during flowering led to a balanced, healthy crop. The growing season progressed almost perfectly with mild summer days that built towards a warmer ideal ripening period in September and October.
2016 allowed for a carefully planned pick date that was not forced by any severe weather incidents or conditions. The resulting wines highlight the balance between nuance, power, and depth that can occur in great vintages. The 2016 wines have an exceptional purity of fruit with elegance, finesse and complexity.
