The Jumping Goat Vineyard is located in the Spring Mountain AVA. This inky colored wine is composed of a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Petit Verdot that was aged for 21 months in French barrels. Instantly drawing attentiona with its glass-staining purple color, this starts off with intense aromas of crème de cassis, rose petals, Turkish coffee and black olive tapenade with lighter earthy tones of damp earth adding complexity. The mouthfeel is intense and highly viscous with crème de cassis, mocha, anise, sandalwood and espresso bean flavors. The range of complexity and plush mouthfeel is a thing of beauty as this stunning wine should go on to cellar marvelously for decades.
