Spring Mountain Vineyard Napa Valley Red Wine (Miravalle-La Perla-Chevalier) 1996 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

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!

For more color on this story and additional review notes, make sure to read PB's review of the wine below. If you can find this wine, or have some hanging around in your cellar- raise a glass!
