Atticus John Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena 2007
This wine is something special. I frequently buy this cab at my local store (which I don't see listed on this site. Hoosick St Wine in Troy, NY) for around $24 and its better than many $60 wines I've had. Everyone I've let try it has gone and gotten their own bottle. If you love big Napa cabs at a Sonoma price give this bad boy a shot. He won't let you down!
External Reviews for Atticus John Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena
The source is a very well known high end Cabernet producer near St Helena. Almost 32 barrels were blended with no fining, no filtration and one final racking to bottle. The story of the legend of Atticus John was told to us by an old farmer in Napa almost 2 years ago - That he had a several dozen large dogs and lived in the hills of Napa at the turn of the 20th century as a "homme sauvage" living off the land. It sounded genuine enough to capture and use for this wine.
A blend of Cabernet with touches of Merlot and Petit Verdot for added fruitiness and complexity. There is a minty freshness on the nose that tells of some time in barrel. The fruit here is sourced from Rutherford and Stag's Leap, resulting a very high quality wine.
This 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is from one of St Helenas top vineyards and producers, but is labeled as Atticus John Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley because the producer had more wine than the current economy could support at prices closer to $100 a bottle. ** Only 12 in Stock **
