External Reviews for Atalon Cabernet Sauvignon 6in
Wine Advocate ReviewRated 90The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a fruit-forward personality, along with notes of melted licorice, black currants, tobacco leaves, and sweet oak in a lush, medium-bodied style with no hard edges. There are 4,400 cases of this 2002, which should enjoy broad crowd appeal. Drink 2003 - 2018.Wine Tasting NotesA friendly wine, that makes a pleasing statement. Red fruit expression. Currants, leather, dried spice notes, then slightly mint, cedar tones, graceful cocoa powder structure - good length of lingering flavors.
