This wine is rich and robust with ripe red and black berry aromas, with hints of pepper, spice,
cocoa and coffee. The dark and rich aromas follow through with consistency on the palate
where the mouth feel is big and concentrated. Flavors of blackberry, blueberry and
currant are wrapped in smooth tannins with a hint of cedar. All evolving into a long, lingering finish.

Two Horns Reserve is the culmination of an 8-year project by Vince Friend, working with a legacy Napa Valley Family Winery to locate and reflect the best of the best of terroir driven varietals best suited to their complete growing environment. Cabernet Sauvignon, along with two additional Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Franc and Merlot, ideally showcase the Spring Mountain appellation.
Beginning with extraordinary fruit which naturally produces outstanding wine, there is a very hands-off approach to winemaking. After a hand harvest, each variety is sorted and gently pressed, barrel aged in young, but not new oak, and then carefully blended to produce a wine that reflects the vineyard in the purest possible way.
Most of the vineyards on Spring Mountain lie above the fog level and enjoy cooler days and warmer nights. Vineyards on the weathered volcanic and sedimentary soils combine low vigor potential soils with high winter rainfalls, cool springtime temperatures, and warm nighttime harvest. Temperatures produce a highly variable yet unique environment for premium wine grape growing within the Napa Valley AVA. Spring Mountain Vineyards are known for their limited production of grapes, wines with intense varietal fruit character and complex mountain tannins that differentiate them
