2017 Limited Release Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon
Our 2017 Limited Release Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon begins with aromas of blackberry, molasses and vanilla. Flavors of dark chocolate, licorice and currant are followed by broad powerful tannins, juicy palate with a long impactful finish.
The grapes for our Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon are grown in the Atlas Peak AVA in the Vaca Mountain range on the eastern side of Napa Valley. The Atlas Peak region is well known for its rocky, volcanic soils and dry growing conditions. Temperatures in Atlas Peak tend to be cooler than most of the regions in Napa Valley, therefore it is one of the latest regions to ripen. Cabernet from Atlas Peak tends to be powerful, tannic, able to age for a long time.
Our grapes are handpicked during the early morning hours at optimal ripeness. Upon arrival at the winery, we hand sort the fruit before it is destemmed into small fermentation tanks.
