Prominence

Today’s wine is extraordinary… and also very limited. We purchased all that we could, but once we sell out, there is no more to be had.

Atlas Peak is one of our best selling wineries of all time - but they’re very difficult to procure. We’re crafty spies, though, and we were able to score a limited cache of their newest release, the Ultra QPR (Quality to Price Ratio) 2015 Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine delivers incredible value for its low price.

This wine is very full-bodied and quite lush on the nose, with aromas of black cherry, spiced blackberry candy, dried fall leaves, molasses, coffee bean, hard leather, mixed spice and black pepper. Concentrated and dense on the palate, with flavors of blackberry, blueberry, cassis, plum, coffee bean, India black tea, sweet spice and a hint of black pepper.

Known for its exceptional Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, the Atlas Peak Winery crafts its extraordinary, limited production Cabernet Sauvignon, exclusively from Napa Valley Mountain fruit. With four mountain appellations in the valley, each produces fruit that expresses the uniqueness of its slopes.

The Atlas Peak AVA (American Viticultural Area) is located in Napa County, on the western slopes of the Vaca Range. This mountain separates the Napa Valley from the Sacramento Valley. With an elevation of 2663 feet, Atlas Peak is the most prominent peak in the region.

Production of wines in the Atlas Peak AVA dates back to 1870. Of the 11,400 acres of land that comprise the AVA, more than 500 acres are under vine. This appellation, which used to be known primarily for Zinfandel production, now produces the premium varietals used to create Bordeaux-style wines. These include the varietals Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petite Verdot, but there are also small plantings of Syrah, Sangiovese, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
