2019 Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon
Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon is accumulating a well-deserved reputation for intensity and finesse. At 1,500 ft. elevation, the Baker vineyard is a series of different volcanic soil types carved out of heavy chaparral in Foss Valley with a southwestern exposure, featuring several clones and rootstalks selected for their suitability to the thin, rocky soil. As a wine of large proportions, the Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon is not for everyone. It needs to settle down and evolve for a while in bottle to soften and broaden the structure. But for the collector who wants to see their investment pay off, this wine is ready to age and grow for a long time. The 2019 Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon offers mountain aromas of sage and blackberry with some coriander seed. The mountain tannins have developed finesse and support the dark toffee and blackberry flavors. Big and elegant, the young wine is hitting a sweet spot where the fruit is dominant in the flavor profile. From here, the fruit will recede into more of a balance with the palate mouthfeel and the oak.
