85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec

In 2016, Edcora Vineyard produced a monumental expression of mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon that seamlessly balances opulence and elegance, while showcasing the depth and refinement that mark the best of Atlas Peak. Aromatically, this wine is intense and complex, with layers of dark berries, ripe plum, clove, wild sage, tobacco leaf, earthy minerality and bittersweet chocolate. The voluptuous dark berry notes are echoed on the palate, where they are framed by rich, supple tannins that draw the wine to a luxurious berry and spice finish.

Vineyard Notes
The 2016 vintage on Atlas Peak provided ideal growing conditions at our Edcora and Attelas estate vineyards. After several years of drought, much-needed winter rains replenished our soils. The wet winter was followed by a dry, temperate spring and summer. Because there was abundant sunshine to ripen the grapes, with no noteworthy heat spikes, the grapes were able to mature slowly, developing beautifully articulated varietal flavors, while preserving the natural acidity that is a key element of our wines. The lovely weather continued into harvest, ensuring that we were able to pick each block exactly when we wished. Overall, yields were down slightly in 2016, resulting in wines with rich, concentrated flavors, supple tannins, and layers of terroir-driven complexity.
