The 2015 Spring Mountain Cabernet offers up complex aromas and firm structure, with richly perfumed notes of mulberries, incense, flowers and spice. This inky, elegant wine offers finesse, restraint and intensity, all wrapped into one.
Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 7% Petit Verdot.
Jeb Dunnuck 94 - A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain offers a classic Mountain fruit profile with its complex aromatics and fresh, focused, chiseled and structured style on the palate. Mulberries, incense, exotic flowers, and spice all leap from the glass of this inky colored Cabernet Sauvignon, and it’s medium to full-bodied, structured and vibrant on the palate. Brought up in 80% new French oak, it has loads of potential but needs 2-4 years of bottle age.
Vinous 93 - The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (Spring Mountain) is sensual, plush and inviting. It is also the softest and most open-knit of these 2015 Cabernets from Robert Craig. Soft tannins and succulent, red-toned fruit add to the wine's gracious, alluring personality. Super-ripe red cherry and plum fruit are pushed forward, with hints of sweet French oak, kirsch, vanillin and spice that add shades of complexity.
James Suckling 91 - This is a little extracted with blackberry and tar character. Full body and chewy tannins. Juicy finish. Just the rich spice, chocolate and ripe fruit at the end. A blend of 75% cabernet sauvignon, 18% cabernet franc, 7% petit verdot. Better in 2019.
