RATINGS

92Wine Enthusiast

This high-toned, well-made wine shows rich clove, tobacco and currant notes beneath its hit of acidity. Firm, woody tannins provide grip, with complexity and full-bodied weight.

90The Wine Advocate

Offering loads of forest floor, juicy blackcurrant and blackberry fruit...medium to full-bodied flavors with hints of crushed rock minerality, this is a relatively big, muscular, impressive Cabernet Sauvignon...

90Wine Spectator

Smoky, toasty oak casts a shadow over the juicy currant and plum flavors, accented by shades of anise and cedar, with firm, gravelly tannins that offer a chunky, pebbly texture.

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.
