About Our Ratings

Atlas Peak’s most valuable resource is the elevation of its vineyards. Grapes grown on the mountains above the natural fog line, experience much lower daytime temperatures than those on the valley floor, allowing the grapes to stay cool while gaining maximum sun exposure. As a result, mountain grapes can be harvested later for optimal flavor without the risk of over ripe fruit and excessive alcohol. And no grape variety develops as well in mountain conditions as Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is made from grapes sourced from Napa Valley, Atlas Peak, Howell Mountain and Spring Mountain. A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec, all hand harvested and then carefully sorted at the winery. Each lot is vinified separately with extended maceration and then aged in 50% new French oak barrels for 15 months. The 2008 vintage was a beautiful one with overall very mild temperatures and just two brief heat waves in September that added to the ripeness. The additional bottle age this wine receives, most Cabs out now are 2010 or '11, makes it incredibly supple, well-developed and complex right out of the bottle. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 90 points saying "A rich, satisfying Cabernet, packed with blackberry, cherry and mocha flavors, with a touch of herbs and mint. Not quite as dense or concentrated as the winery’s mountain-appellated Cabs, but quite a good one." Don't miss this beautiful mountain Cab on SALE!!

Ridiculous Value Napa Cab
This has everything you could want in a Napa Cab under $30. Dark black fruits, cassis and vanilla almond aromas get you to pay attention to this wine. The concentrated fruit remains at the core of this wine with the outer edges of smoky oak and mocha rounding it out. I'll take it over a lot of the big guns out there...
