User Reviews for Lot 172 Atlas Peak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: Beautiful, dark scarlet center with a matching rim. Aromas of ripe, dark fruit with a touch of sweet vanilla occupy the forward bouquet. The wine offers deeper flavors of blueberry on the palate, reverberating the lush fruit and vanilla bean essence that is elevated by rich French oak. This is a well-structured Cabernet with tannins soft and supple. Cameron Confidential: This cab comes from a high-end program that has been making great Cabernet for years, so we were lucky to get our hands on some cab as good as this. We sourced this wine from an $85-per-bottle program out of Atlas Peak. The most valuable aspect of Atlas Peak is its high elevation. Grapes grown at this high elevation, above the natural fog line, experience much lower daytime temperatures than those on the valley floor, allowing the grapes to stay cool while gaining maximum sun exposure. As a result, mountain growers can afford to harvest later and pick for optimal flavor without the risk of overripe fruit and excessive alcohol. While this strategy benefits many varietals, no grape variety develops as well in mountain conditions as Cabernet Sauvignon.
