Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon

About This Item

The 2008 Atlas Peak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon begins with really powerful and enticing aroma full of succulent dark fruit (black cherry, blackberry and plum) that is tinged with beautiful vanilla and oak. Tasting the wine reveals more of the same and that’s a really good thing. Rich and juicy dark fruit, sweet oak, good acidity and slightly chewy tannins round out this nicely balanced Cabernet. It ends dry with good length and features a little tobacco and chocolate under the rich fruit. 18 months in 100% French oak (50% new) was put to fabulous use in this wine with the oak never overpowering but instead adding depth and complexity. This would make a fabulous cheeseburger wine.
