Why do we love Atlas Peak Wines so much? Because they always seem to craft killer wines like today’s 2007 Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon.

Rich, layered, and positively bursting with flavors, today’s wine was everything we hoped it would be. But be forewarned: today’s wine needs some serious time in a decanter. Once it does come to life, you’ll be greeted by clear high-elevation notes and one of the smoothest finishes around. The dark fruit and spice flavors lingered on our tongue for what seemed like minutes after we put our glass down.

If you like big Cabs, then please do yourself a favor and fill your cellar with today’s tasty treat. We guarantee it’s everything you could hope for.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Incredibly vivid dark crimson, with swirls of bright cherry and inky magenta meeting in the heart of the glass.

Smell:

A classic high elevation Cab, with rich, condensed flavors of plum, black cherry, and boysenberry immediately presenting themselves. Touches of dried Mission fig, sweet tobacco leaf, fresh mint, clove, and dark coffee bean provide a subtle foundation for the rich fruit aromatics.

Taste:

Incredibly lush flavors abound on today’s wine. The wine beautifully coats the entirety of the palate. Lightly grilled Santa Rosa plum, black cherry, and super ripe dark berries are laid overtop a foundation of espresso bean, rich saddle leather, dark baker’s chocolate, clove, star anise, and a bit of dried Provençal herbs.

Finish:

A truly huge wine, this monster is best decanted. The finish lingers, with dark fruit and spice notes sticking with you long after you’ve put your glass down.

Pairing:

A t-bone steak with garlic mashed potatoes.
