The 2006 Spring Mountain District was picked from 14 different vineyard blocks over a period of 41 days in September/October. They used 85% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Wurtele Vineyard Estate, 10% Cabernet from the more recently planted Yverdon Vineyard Estate, 3% Merlot from Yverdon and 2% Cabernet Franc. The wine was fermented during an 31-day period with punch downs twice daily. They aged it for 22 months in French oak barrels, 33% of which were new. Terra Valentine is blessed with two estate vineyards that capture the best of Spring Mountain - The Wurtele Vineyard and the Yverdon Vineyard. They are distinguished by a diversity of mountain terrain and vines that are well-adapted to the environment. While the mountain sites present challenges - including accessibility, diversity of soils, ripening, and hand labor - they reward the effort in wine filled with intense flavor and color. Each vineyard, with a unique set of soils, exposures, and micro-climates, produces a wine of distinction and personality reflecting the terroir of the estate. The Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of both the Wurtele and Yverdon Vineyard Estates.
