Love in the clouds

Today’s wine is nothing short of phenomenal! Especially when you consider today’s incredible price.

We are thrilled to welcome back one of our very favorite recent winery finds, Ardente Estate Winery, whose Atlas Peak Cabernets have been among our most popular sellers.

Today’s 2005 Ardente Estate Winery Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon is a stylistically perfect Napa Valley Cabernet. This wine is very balanced and very elegant, with bold fruit flavors juxtaposed with lush earth and spice characteristics.

Drinking beautifully, now, this wine will continue to improve over the next several years. Enjoy right out of the bottle, but decant for an even more elegant drinking experience.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark and dusty ruby red with beautiful clear ruby edging.

Smell:

Plum and sweet tobacco leap from the glass. As you inhale more deeply, the wine unpacks aromas of black cherry, spice, cherry jello, espresso bean, pencil shavings and hoisin sauce.

Taste:

Loaded with dark flavors of blackberry, plum, briased plum and dark leather. Under these, black pepper and coffee bean meld with toasty vanilla and a hint of subtle savory sage.

Finish:

Mouth-coating and very persistent, with black fruit flavors that linger on for a very long time. At the very tail, subtle smoked almond and hard dried salami flavors emerge.

Pairing:

Enjoy this wine with a wide variety of foods, including a charcuterie plate or a big and juicy grilled steak.
