Winemaker Notes

A deep ruby in the glass, the 2009 Atalon offers pleasing aromas of rich black cherry and plum, wrapped in intriguing oak, spice and cedar notes. A round, voluptuous structure supports a gorgeous depth of flavor centering on sweet black cherry, currant, chocolate and coffee. Juicy and jammy, the spicy oak and chocolate notes interlace beautifully with sweet blackberry and black cherry tones leading to a soft, velvety finish.

Critical Acclaim

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Bright, dark red. Strong rose petal lift to the redcurrant aroma. Sweet, round and easygoing, with juicy acidity giving shape to the cherry and redcurrant flavors. A rather voluptuous cabernet whose firm tannins won't get in the way of enjoying it young. This is the first vintage for new winemaker Brian Kosi, who told me he's trying to soften this wine up somewhat while maintain its 'mountain backbone.'

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with gorgeous, perfumed aromatics. Sweet red berries, flowers, licorice and spices flow effortlessly from this beautifully delineated wine. Bright, floral notes add lift on the finish. This is a terrific wine for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
