    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of all the mountain appellations, Atlas Peak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon demonstrates power and structure and shows firm tannins and explosive fruit flavors.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Fruit stars in this young, rich Cabernet. It's as good as young, drink-me-now Napa Cab gets, offering waves of blackberries, cherries, plums, sweet oak and spices that go on and on into long finish. The tannins are perfectly ripe, the acidity fine and brisk.

    95+. Full of Cabernet fruit - blackcurrant with vanill and hints of coffee or chocolate and maybe plums or black cherry. Fruit forward, but certainly not sweet. In fact, judging from the 14.5% alcohol content the residual sugar is probably minimal. the fruit carries the alcohol very nicely. The tannins were soft and light, but I consider that a plus. I htought I was mistaken because its not likely to get a superb wine at this price point but my wife, who has a great palate, firmly agreed. Both of us felt this was better than the 08 Alexander Valley Silver Oak and at a fraction the price.

    Vanilla oak, blackberry, and currant aromas with some spicy notes in the background. Bold blackberry, currant, plum, and oak flavors with surprisingly mild tannins. Hints of cocoa and chocolate emerge in the aromas and flavors on the first day as the wine airs in the glass. Tannins also emerge a bit more as the wine airs in the glass, but they remain smooth and not harsh. Second day similar to the first, with the tannins emerging a bit more in the flavors and finish. Third day generally similar to the second, with a cedar component becoming prominent in the aromas, and just a hint of alcohol in the finish. A big, full bodied, fruit-forward wine; smooth, with mild tannins that become a little more prominent on the second and third days after opening. Nice long finish with balanced fruit and tannins. A bit of fine sediment in the bottom of the bottle.

    This is a very nice red. It is consistently one of our favorites and when I was able to get some at $19 I jumped at it.

    Unexpected pleasure. Besin Frncophiles in the wine department, we just now are getting used to being on the West Coast, and enjoying the variety unavailable on the East. We had not heard of this wine, but absolutely loved it, and can highly recommend it. Smooth, but with enough tannic bite to make it interesting, it is very good value indeed.
