Food Pairings for Lot 318 Atlas Peak Meritage
Notes: Inviting aromas of red fruit, loam, minerals, spice and black currant punctuated with dried flower notes. Supple red fruit flavors on the palate supported by finely polished tannins. Cameron Confidential: This estate is located within Napa Valley's Atlas Peak Appellation, aptly named after Atlas Peak Mountain, which locals in-the-know also call the Blue Mountain. It's the highest point in the region rising 2,663 feet above the valley floor. Located in Napa's eastern hills, the peak juts out of the Vaca Range which separates Napa from the Sacramento valleys. The appellation can be demanding with its high elevation, thin soils, and rocky outcrops. Yet those who see beyond its challenges are rewarded with a mountain-influenced climate with cool, wet winters and warm, dry summers. Atlas Peak is sunny. Yet, night-time temperatures drop, making it a perfect combination for growing grapes with good sugars and acid. And what that means in the end is a bottle of wine that shows off its lush fruit flavors without being flabby.
