Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon Atlas Peak 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Located in a sweeping uplifted valley, high in the eastern hills of the Vaca Range, the Atlas Peak appellation is the anchor of the Atlas Peak Mountain Cabernet Series. We are blessed with lots of sunshine and cooler days. Temperatures drop very quickly from their daytime highs, and night-time temperatures are only slightly higher than those in Yountville, due west of the appellation. Virtually all of the Atlas Peak’s vineyards receive full sunlight throughout the day, with cooling afternoon winds from the San Francisco Bay. Atlas Peak’s soils are well-drained and derive from volcanic material. They are dominated by residual upland soils, though valley fill alluvium (mostly gravelly loams) occupies the upper drainage of Milliken Creek and Rector Canyon. Atlas Peak Claret shows power and structure, exploding on the palate to exhibit lush, rich, bold tannins with concentrated fruit flavors of ripe cherry and blueberry. Read less
