RATINGS

93+ The Wine Advocate

...scents of baked black plums, stewed cherries, mulberries and crème de cassis...full-bodied palate is completely packed with black fruit preserves, framed by velvety tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and earthy.

93+ Jeb Dunnuck

...rounded, expansive mouthfeel as well as slightly more present, chewy tannins, which can be common from the Atlas Peak region of the valley. Blackcurrants, graphite, crushed stone, and earthy notes all define the bouquet.

91James Suckling

Stewed blackberry, clove, pine cone and grilled pepper on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with firm, fine tannins. Juicy finish.

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.
