Purply color in the glass. Kind of a musky funk on the nose. Initial taste is quite tart. Then I get lots of tannin. Only after that do I get some cassis flavor. I don't know about this one. I don't get it. Tanzer, Parker and Wine Enthusiast ive this wine good ratings. To me it is completely unbalanced. I get a heavy musk, again, on the finish. Maybe some O2 will help it. US$23.99 at Costco in Chino Hills. 3/25/14 Amendment: OK, on day two, I am enjoying this wine a bit more. Flavors, acid and tannin appear to be integrated, now.

Rich cassis nose with hints of mint and oak vanilla. On the palate, sweet red berry fruit with flowers and spices. Nice wine driven by rich, red currant and a nice texture. Lingers nicely. Tasty wine. 89 pts. 4/6/13

Really drinks smooth. Smoky on the nose, warming to velvety fruit on the finish. Nice wine.

This is a good value. It’s tannins, weight and intensity of cassis-liqueur flavor brings it right up there with some of Napa’s more expensive Cabs. Rich and flashy for drinking now and over the next 4–5 years.

Espresso and cocoa powder lend some added intensity to the black cherry, plum and cassis notes, with a spicy, peppery, herbal finish. Drink now through 2020.

Medium red-ruby. Cool aromas of redcurrant and menthol; subtly sweet flavors of dark berries, licorice and chocolate, plus a hint of tree bark. Not hugely dense but offers good lift and length. Dusty tannins will not stand in the way of enjoying this wine over the next few years.

Atalon’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is fleshy and generous, with plenty of fruit and terrific overall balance, not to mention considerable early appeal. Hints of tobacco, dried herbs and incense add complexity on the finish. This is a very solid wine for the money. The 2010 is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 5% Malbec and 3% Petite Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2021.

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.

Notably herbal and earthy, showing a road tar edge to the dried currant and roasted herb, with a bitter twinge on the finish. Drink now through 2020.
