Atalon 2010 Pauline's Cuvee Red, Napa Valley
Atalon Napa Valley Pauline’s Cuvee is a powerful Merlot and Cabernet Franc blend inspired by the strength of Atalon’s matriarch, Pauline Banke. Crafted in the style of the Right Bank wines of Bordeaux, this cuvee is sourced from exclusive vineyard sites throughout Napa Valley—including the Stagecoach Vineyard on Atlas Peak and the Coombsville Vineyard in the recently designated Coombsville appellation—and reveals a taste of the region’s majestic geology. The blend is 77% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3 % Malbec and 1% Petite Verdot aged 14 months in oak barrels. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 93 points saying "This Merlot-based blend is a huge success. It’s a big, tannic, tight wine, packed to bursting with black cherry liqueur, cola and spice flavors. Yet it maintains an exciting balance, with the tension between acids, tannins and oak in equilibrium. Seems like it wants 5–6 years in the cellar to let it throw some tannins and mellow."

    Comments about Atalon 2010 Pauline's Cuvee Red, Napa Valley:

    Not the fruit bomb you may expect, this Cab is really well balanced across the board. Very typical black cherry, cassis and cola on the nose bringing some sweet spices, vanilla and smoke on the edges. The mouthfeel is full and lively, yet the firm and somewhat agressive tannins kick in on the back palate leaving a long, dry and fruit filled finish. Only going to improve over the next several years
