2016 Armada Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU: URCSAR-16

  Spring Mountain, California

Deep magenta in color, the nose reveals wild blackberries accented by hints of cocoa, damp earth, and spices. The palate has a core of concentrated fruit with a mixture of black cherry, cassis, and plum jam flavors. The structure is a classic expression of gritty mountain fruit with a bold assertive tannin structure and a rich, savory mouthfeel. Long and polished on the finish, the Armada is best served today after a couple hours of aeration but should also evolve beautifully over the next 12-15 years.

The Spring Mountain AVA is home to some of Napa’s finest Cabernet vineyards, yielding a bold, sophisticated expression of the grape all its own. Perched high above the town of Saint Helena, the cool climate, rugged terrain, and elevation all play a part in making the region and its wines so special. For the first time in many vintages we are proud to offer an example of this fine terroir with our 2016 Armada. 100% mountain grown Cabernet Sauvignon, the Armada is a classic example of the greatness achieved from Spring Mountain.
