Immortal is a project of Tim Martin of Tusk in Napa, Randy Nichols, and winemaker Timothy Milos. Tim was drawn to the diversity of Sonoma and wanted to make a truly luxury wine on the other side of the mountain. Immortal is located just on the other side of Spring Mountain and is a terraced vineyard site on 55-degree slopes.
Immortal Estate is an evolution of the Hidden Ridge Vineyard. The vineyard is located in between Santa Rosa, Sonoma Valley and St. Helena, Napa Valley.
"The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Impassable Mountain is also brilliant, and while a monster of a wine as well, it brings slightly more elegance and purity. Black cherries, blackberries, currants, tobacco, chalky minerality, tobacco, and lead pencil notes all emerge from the glass, and it's full-bodied, with plenty of chocolatey oak, notable freshness, and a great, great finish. It's certainly not for those seeking Bordeaux-like delicacy or lightweight aromas and flavors, but it brings a Napa-like sense of opulence and decadence. Give it 3-4 years and enjoy over the following two decades." Jeb Dunnuck 96 points
