93The Wine Advocate

...aromas of ripe cherries, dark spices and rose petals, it's full-bodied, ample, and quite open-knit, with a giving profile despite the underlying chassis of firm mountain tannins that its generous core of fruit largely conceals...creamy mid-palate.

90-93Vinous / IWC

...Firm, pointed and articulate...Orange peel, white pepper, sage, mint and crushed rocks give the Mead Ranch many of its distinctive flavor signatures. There is terrific aromatic complexity and nuance here.


United States, California, Napa Valley, Atlas Peak

Atlas Peak AVA is perched above the Stags Leap AVA to the northeast of the city of Napa. Elevation ranges from 760 to 2,600 feet, and temperatures are up to 15 degrees cooler in the Atlas Peak vineyards compared with vineyards in the valley. There are 1,500 vineyard acres planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The appellation was named for Atlas Peak, which, at 2,633 feet above sea level, is the highest peak in the area.


Red Wine, Zinfandel

Zinfandel is a black-skinned grape, but 85% of the wine produced is made into a rosy “White Zinfandel.” Red Zin is far more complex and bold, while still being light-bodied. It grows in popularity as winemakers continue to experiment with new styles and blends.
