Atlas Peak Vineyards 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
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 Stagecoach Vineyard block 6, Ink Grade Vineyard, Howell Mountain and Mt. Veeder. A blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Malbec and 1% Cabernet Franc, 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 36 months. The 2009 vintage was a year of mild, steady weather throughout the majority of the season. The uniform maturity and even temperatures created early and full flavor development. This wine shows blackberry, cherry and mocha flavors, with a touch of spice. Supple but concentrated on the mid palate, the flavors linger in the finish. Don't miss this beautiful mountain Cab.

    Comments about Atlas Peak Vineyards 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley:

    This is a nice Cab with long barrel aging, around 36 months. It's very smooth, ready to drink now and should evolve nicely for a few more years.
