2015 Atlas Peak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Napa Valley: Atlas Peak
When Grand Napa offered us their 2015 Atlas Peak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, they declared that “This wine is the best wine that we’ve ever produced. You’re going to love it!” Our entire tasting panel agreed, this is their best wine to date. Mix and match with the Grand Napa Sauvignon Blanc on our home page for a lower overall price on 6.
Beautifully lush and fragrant, with delectable aromas of boysenberry jam, cassis, chocolate covered blueberry, plum, spice, cedar plank and a hint of black pepper. Juicy and bold on the palate, with flavors of Santa Rosa plum, cassis, leather, spice box, chocolate covered cherry, blueberry, dried fall leaves and a hint of white pepper at the end.
So, where did the fruit for today’s wine come from? We can’t tell you, but we can tell you that there are only about a dozen wineries that grow the premium fruit that grows on Atlas Peak. And those wineries produce some of the most sought-after, most exclusive and most expensive Cabernets in the Napa Valley.
This wine is very highly recommended!
Here’s what the wine press has to say.
91 Points - James Suckling - ” A dusty textured red with dark berry and chocolate character. Hints of dried fruit and fig. Full body, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. A blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. Drink or hold.”
Double Gold Medal - San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
Inky, dark purple at the heart of the wine, darkest garnet at the meniscus.
Boysenberry jam, cassis, chocolate covered blueberry, plum, spice, cedar plank and a hint of black pepper.
Santa Rosa plum, cassis, leather, spice box, chocolate covered cherry, blueberry, dried fall leaves and a hint of white pepper at the end.
Super smooth and elegant, with grippy, chewy tannins that give the wine a sense of dimension and inportance on the palate.
Enjoy this elegant, serious wine with your favorite grilled meats. We’re drooling over the notion of enjoying our review bottle, later tonight, with a thick, juicy, rare New York strip steak!
