2015 Acumen PEAK Attelas Cabernet Sauvignon
85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec; 180 cases produced.
With a mild northwest exposure and rock-filled, loamy soils, our 32 acre Attelas Vineyard portrays a more delicate side of our Estate. This sheltered vineyard allows for gentle, even ripening with fine, mature tannins and lower alcohol levels creating a wine of grace and balance.
The 2015 vintage opens with a bouquet of ripe raspberries,potpourri, fresh asphalt, and the wet rocks and bay trees that dot the hillsides around the Estate. On the palate we find aromas and flavors of vanilla incense, French roast coffee, sweet bell peppers, and mountain fruits likepomegranates and red cherries. The elegant structure and ripe tannins display the dusty, slightly cooler nature of the vineyard and combine with a lively freshness and aromas of black tea, cherry-stones, and roasted beets that continue to evolve through the long, elegant finish.
With all the aromatic complexity and fine texture found in the 2015 PEAK Attelas Vineyard, we feel this vintage will continue to develop and add an elegant bottle bouquet over the next 15 to 20+ years in your cellar.
