If Roberts Road is our modern, extracted, fruit-forward pinot, Spring Hill is our old world, more restrained, earth-driven wine. Spring Hill is all about finesse. And finesse is all about delivery. Finesse is when the wine does all the work, as it effortlessly delivers everything it has to offer, in just the right order, with just the right amplitude.
So here’s what’s coming to your nose: black tea, cherry, juniper and hibiscus. And to your mouth: ripe plum and strawberry with equal measures of nutmeg, caraway seed, clove and vanilla.
There is more to discern here but rather than try to call out every aroma and flavor let us jump to the conclusion. Spring Hill is a startlingly unique patch of earth. It doesn’t taste like Carneros or Russian River or anywhere else on your wine aisle. It tastes like Spring Hill.
