RATINGS

92Wine Spectator

Thickly layered, featuring plum, fig and black currant reduction notes, as well as charcoal and loam details... Streaks of bay leaf and tobacco lend cut and lift, with an alder hint adding range at the end.

90Wine Enthusiast

Jammy blackberry and dark chocolate mark the midpalate richness of this wine... Dusty dried herb makes a statement on the nose as the lean, elegant style comes to the fore.

REGION

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.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
