Spring Mountain Vineyard Napa Valley Red Wine (Miravalle-La Perla-Chevalier) 1996 Wine Review (NW)
Nice nose of black cherry and tobacco
Savory core, juicy and smoky
Finishes with berries, earth, minerals, and traces of vanilla
At a hole-in-the-wall store this past Spring, PB of the blog took a chance on this bottle. He figured it was a treasure worth grabbing. And he was right! It has nice layers, is smooth, and seamlessly integrated. He paid $57 for the wine, and waited to share it with fellow wine enthusiasts accompanied by a good meal. It was memorable!
