2020 Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon
Pure Cabernet nose of rich cassis, blueberry and black plum along with telltale aromas of black tea and dried violets, with notable minerality and earth.
It leads with vibrant acidity, unfolding into a richer texture with flavors of black currant, tart red currant and cherry cola, acai, sassafrass and suggestions of humidor ending on bergamot and tangerine zest. This vintage is very Bordeaux in structure with a backbone of acidity that will provide quality aging and imminent food pairability. It will reward the patient over the next 7+ years with added complexity and nuance.
The wine aged in 50% new French oak for 19 months.
A Cabernet lover's vintage! Due to the growing conditions in 2020, the wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon for the first time in a decade.
