Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This Cabernet offers lovely, soft aromas of black cherry, blackberry and boysenberry with hints of tobacco and licorice. The lush fruit flavors are layered with notes of coffee, chocolate and cinnamon. Delicate tannins lead to the long, evolving finish.
Vineyard Notes
Atlas Peak is a celebrated micro-AVA with the larger Napa Valley AVA. This wine comes from a single vineyard above the fogline that experiences a significant diurnal shift, very warm days and very cool nights. This allows the grapes to ripen fully while retaining high acidity. Known for its volcanic, rocky and well-drained soils that produce small, concentrated grape clusters, Atlas Peak produces Cabernet Sauvignons that impress enthusiasts across the globe.
Winemaker Notes
The 2018 growing season in Napa valley was steady with great conditions for growing all varieties. The beautifully conditions kicked off with a sunny spring that led to the vines flowering uniformly and ensuring even cluster development. Summer temperatures were steady, and the Valley benefited from a long, slow Harvest without heat spikes or rain. Cabernet Sauvignon, the last-picked variety always, experienced extended hang time with warm days and cool nights, allowing the grapes to reach their full ripeness and expression. The complex, layered and high-quality wines of this vintage, especially the powerful reds which will continue to age gracefully, will be remembered and celebrated in years to come.
