2018 Atlas Peak AVA Cabernet Sauvignon
Red Wine from Napa Valley, United States
This Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon from Atlas Peak AVA is stunning, displaying deep garnet color and immediately catches the eye as you pour it into the glass. With well-married intense aromas of blackberry, dark fruit and hints of rich toasted walnut reach out of the glass beckoning for a taste. The flavors mimic the aromas exploding on the palate with the structure and weight one would expect to find from hillside Cabernet but especially from this premium vineyard on the eastern slope of Napa Valley. The tannins are more sufficient to allow this wine to age for many years, but restrained enough to enjoy now.
