Atlas Peak Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Enthusiast Review Rated 92 Appeals now for its dryness, elegance and lush, intricate black currant, chocolate and cedar flavors, which finish in a swirl of anise and cinnamon spice. But the tannins are so rich and refined, the wine should easily negotiate the next eight years.

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

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Overripe nose. Lots of spice, lavendar and sage. A bit herbal and spicy for my taste in a cab. -Tasted at the winery 9/19/09.

This is for the Spring Mountain District label. The age has done this wine quite well and it will probably improve over the next several years. Let it decant for a good hour and you'll be happy. Classic California cab with excellent fruit.

As it says on the label, this wine is a mountain blend. Atlas Peak bottles individual mountain Cabs from Howell Mountain, Mount Veeder, Spring Mountain and Atlas Peak. This Napa Valley Cab is a blend of grapes from all of those AVA’s. Mountain fruit is concentrated and brimming with flavor because these hillside vines have to struggle while at the same time the temperatures stay cool due to the altitude, lengthening the growing season and finally the sun baths them with nourishing light as they lie above the fog line. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this bold Cab 91 points and said “A beautiful Cabernet that shows a firm structure of acids and tannins, with perfectly ripened fruit that seduces the palate but doesn’t go overboard. Floods the mouth with black currants, black cherry pie filling and cedar flavors, but stays firmly dry and balanced. Now through 2012. “ Limited.

Dark ruby/purple core with a ruby rim. Raspberry, cocoa powder and orange zest on the nose followed by cooler blueberry notes with a touch of graphite, earthy violets and spicy vanilla.
