Newton's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain Single Vineyard is deep garnet-purple with a nose of black currants and blackberries with hints of underbrush, bay leaves and chargrill. Medium-bodied with firm, grainy tannins, it's just a little lean in the mid-palate, finishing long and earthy.

Grapes from a 40-year-old block on the estate are the source of this sturdy, slightly astringent, minty wine. Vibrant black fruits lurk beneath a cloak of tannin and oak in this infant example, although it will have plenty to offer after cellaring. 80% new French oak.
