Vineyard 7 & 8 Cabernet Sauvignon 7 Spring Mountain 2010
Napa Cabernet collectors/aficionados/fanaticos, unless you like ‘em crazy massive, titanically ageworthy, mountain-fruit powerful, rich and stunningly concentrated/sexy --- DELETE this email. Hardcores only need apply today!!! Spring Mountain Cab blockbuster-ness! INCREDIBLE price!
~Made by rockstar, we-can’t-keep-up-with-all-his-95-100-point-scores winemaster LUC MORLET (Google him! The guy is a force of nature!).
~2010 vintage! Parker’s Wine Advocate says: “The 2010s are magnificent, viscerally thrilling wines loaded with character and personality.” We say: “To put it mildly”...
~THE PRICE!! How do we do it? Don’t worry, just take advantage of it --- we only have a tiny bit!
~The Steffens family, owners of 7 & 8, are fanatical about quality -- wait until you taste this!!
~At 8 years old, this gorgeous wine still drinks like it’s 2 years old, and will continue to age for another decade or more, easy! So get a few extra while you can and drink it in 2028!!
Just a crazy deal, especially with the PRISTINE, perfect provenance. This drinks like a modern, on-the-pricey-side Bordeaux second growth. Tons of brilliantly pure boysenberry fruit, lead pencil, dark cocoa and luscious, spicy French oak, and it has impressive weight, power and structure (hey, it’s Spring Mountain!). Plush, masculine, long, spicy and just now coming into its drinking window (barely!). BUT!! BUT --- as you can imagine, there is very little of this --- please grab it while you can! Good luck!!

About The Producer
After a measured and patient search for a vineyard property in the Napa Valley, the Steffens Family ended their quest when they acquired a forty-acre property atop Spring Mountain. Planted in the early 1980’s to eight acres of each Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, the property met the family’s stringent requirements to sustainably grow premium grapes allowing them to craft wines with a true sense of place.
Founded in 1999 and named after proprietor Launny Steffens’ life and background in the world of finance with a theme encompassed by numerics, and a keen interest in numerology — “seven” being a number of luck in western culture, while “eight” follows the meanings of prosperity and happiness in eastern culture — Vineyard 7 & 8 is the culmination of the family’s pursuit for producing fine wines including Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
