2013 Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon
Ahhh – that lovely briary white sage and burnt marshmallow, with some nice cassis and a hint of blackberry that just come naturally to the Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon. Definitely one to lay down for a while, but maybe because we did the blending so early, the layers are already settling into place nicely. The tannins are elegant and fine-grained with ripe concentrated almost raisiny flavors drawn out by blackberry, white pepper, and very dark chocolate. Give this wine 5 years and you will have a classic beauty.
