2016 Amaryllis Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

2016 Amaryllis Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Amaryllis Cabernet Sauvignon is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon with 4% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. This wine shows an unusual richness given its location, 1000 feet above the valley floor. While deep and mouthcoating on the palate, there is a classic tannic backbone underlying, reminding you of its mountain source. Extended time in the cellar will reward you in 3 to 5 years. 


Harvest Notes


Heading into the fourth year of a prolonged drought, we had a warm, dry winter, which led to an early bud break in 2016. The growing season stayed ahead of normal through the entire season with no measurable rainfall until mid-October.  Perched on an exposed shoulder up on Spring Mountain, this site gets plenty of sun, as it sits above the fog, basking in the warmth of the valley. the vines. With no rain through the summer, an early August thinning occurred, leading to picture perfect harvest weather on the 21st and 28th of September.
