Atlas Peak Wines
2007 Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Napa Valley: Spring Mountain District
Today marks the long-anticipated return of one of our most popular brands, Atlas Peak Wines. And boy, did we win big with their extraordinary 2007 Atlas Peak Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is simply extraordinary - and very, very elegant.
This fantastic wine - from the most important vintage in the last decade - is loaded with rich flavors and heady aromas. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied but balanced and quite elegant. What about the finish? It lasts forever!
This wine is a ready-to-drink delight that will continue to age elegantly for the next several years. Be careful, though. We think that once you taste your first bottle, you won’t be able to resist drinking the rest.
Decant this very highly recommended wine for best results.
Deep, nearly opaque plum from core to rim, with only a slight lightening to ruby at the fringe. This wine trails beautifully down the glass after a swirl.
Big, bold, powerful notes of dark fruit, highlighted by reduced blackberry, black cherry, and plum. The fruit interplays wonderfully with aromas of sweet tobacco, aged cigar box, allspice, clove, and dark chocolate.
Elegant and warm, leading with inviting fruit flavors of stewed black currant, blackberry, and blueberry laid atop a foundation of sweet cedar wood, fresh forest floor, espresso bean, rosemary, and a subtle hint of pomegranate herbal tea.
Absolutely wonderfully balanced, with concentrated flavors that are not in the least bit overpowering. Subtle, velvety tannins lead to an enduring, rewarding finish, with just a hint of spice at the back of the palate.
This velvet smooth wine would be superb with a nice rare filet mignon, with garlic and black pepper rub.
