Cabernet Sauvignon •Ardente Estate
California: Napa Valley: Atlas Peak
This is exactly the sort of wine that we have come to expect from our friends at Ardente Estate Winery. The wine is elegant, dark and aromatic.
As compared to past vintages, today’s wine is made in even more of an old world or rustic style, reminiscent of Italian wines. This makes today’s 2006 Ardente Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon a fantastic food wine.
Great on opening, this wine really benefits from extended decanting. As the wine breathes, it gradually opens up to reveal added aromas and deepening flavors.
At today’s special 53% off price, this superb wine may not last the day.
Concentrated dark burgundy hues with a slightly opaque heart of dark purple.
Sweet and dense with aromas of blackberry, black cherry, plum and mixed berry compote. As the wine breathes, it unravels to reveal sweet tobacco leaf, sweet spice, bramble and dried blueberry.
Dark and rich, with flavors that almost perfectly mirror the nose. Here again, the wine reveals added flavors that emerge with decanting or hearty swirling. In particular, flavors of dried cranberry, dried leaves and dried cherry add on.
Very long and elegant with dark fruit that gives way to earth and spice characteristics.
Enjoy this elegant and very food-friendly wine with a wide variety of foods. A classic, rare filet would be the perfect companion for this delicious Cabernet as the wine will not overpower the steak.
