A Spring Mountain Cab for under $60 🦄 yes, unicorns do exist. And this might even be my favorite terroir-driven style and expression of mountain fruit from Napa Valley. . . . Brothers Stuart and Charles Smith of @smith_madrone have been producing classic Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Riesling (!!) at their Spring Mountain property since 1971. They are OG Napa and consistently produce top-quality wines year after year. Madrone refers to an evergreen-type tree that grows on their property, and their tasting room is by appointment only…because you legit stand in their workshop and drink wine with the winemaker when you visit ☺️ . . We brought this bottle home to ATL after tasting with Charles in November, and now I’m spoiled by the quality-to-price ratio because it doesn’t get better than this. An elegant, refined Cabernet Sauvignon with a soft mouthfeel and notes of licorice, holiday spice, and savory dark fruits. Paired it with my husband’s homemade chicken wings and mushroom risotto 👌🏻 . . #NapaValley #SpringMountain #ClassicNapa #winenotes #winepairing #winetravel #winestories #cabernetsauvignon #peopleofwine #meetthewinemaker #smithmadrone
