Mission Codename True Elegance

Today’s Ardente Estate Winery 2007 Atlas Peak Napa Valley Grande Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a fantastic wine - especially at today’s special WIA 2013 price. This wine was named “Best of Show” at Premiere Napa Valley, a highly influential trade sampling and charity auction that attracts the finest wines from the best wineries.

This wonderful 2007 (Robert Parker gave this important vintage a 96 point score, and Wine Spectator issued a 99 point score) is still approaching its peak - and there is plenty of life left in it. On opening, this mountain Cabernet exudes wonderful fruit on the nose. As it breathes, it unravels to reveal even more elegant fruit, earth and spice. On the palate, the wine is soft and elegant. Plush tannins deliver fruit compote and earthy character to the far corners of the palate.

2007 Vintage Update: Wine Spectator recently awarded the 2007 Napa Valley vintage an astounding 99 point score, declaring: “With near-perfect growing conditions and a small crop, the grapes [in 2007] reached ideal ripeness, and the wines show uncommon richness and complexity, a lush texture and impeccable balance.” This rating is the highest since 1997, leading Zachys to say, “If you love Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and its blends from Napa Valley…NOW is the time to load up before these last remaining wines disappear! The Wine Advocate’s final reviews on late releasing 2007s are due out this December but don’t expect these wines to be still available then. Load up now and secure some of the most complex Napa Valley Cabernets in the past decade or more!”
