Spring Mountain Elivette 2018
6 in stock
Complexity, concentration, and cohesiveness are hallmarks of the 2018 Elivette with layers upon layers of aromas and flavors slowly peeling open as the wine evolves in the glass. Both the pedigree of our estate, along with the exceptional 2018 vintage are on full display with this wine. Aromas of red and blue fruits mingle with earthy forest floor, dried tea leaves, and dried fruit. As the wine further opens, tobacco leaf, violets, black currants, and sage evolve into dusty sweet sandalwood and cocoa spice. On the palate, the youthfulness of this wine initially shows tight, dark bitter cocoa before opening into earthy blue fruits, fresh fig, and dried rose petals. Structurally, the wine is broad across the palate with a lingering finish of cedar and spice. With proper cellaring this wine should age gracefully for many years to come but with proper decanting is ready to drink now.
Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot, 6% Merlot, 4% Malbec
