95Jeb Dunnuck

...big, sexy nose of crème de cassis, mulberries, and blueberries that give way to more crème caramel, toasted spice, and violet aromas and, full-bodied wine, yet it's beautifully balanced, has a good sense of freshness, ripe tannins, and a great finish.

94+ The Wine Advocate

...scents of baked black cherries, boysenberries and mulberries leading to a core of crème de cassis, unsmoked cigars and new leather plus wafts of pencil lead and scorched earth...full-bodied palate, it has a firm, chewy texture and just enough freshness to support the earth-laced black fruits, finishing on a persistent mineral note.

94James Suckling

Blueberry, blackcurrant jam, dark chocolate and roasted coffee on the nose, as well as dried herbs...full-bodied with firm, powdery tannins. Structured and chewy with rich chocolate and tobacco notes. Big wine.

93Vinous / IWC

Plush and deep...plenty of stuffing, the Cordes conveys plenty of mountain structure balance with succulent fruit. Dark cherry, plum, chocolate, licorice and pipe tobacco meld into the creamy finish.


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, 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.
