79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot

Bringing together the best of both worlds from our Attelas and Edcora estate vineyards, this wine balances the concentration and power of great mountain-grown Cabernet, with a layered complexity that reflects the diversity of our estate vineyards.

On the nose, gorgeous aromas of ripe blackberry and sweet black cherry mingle with notes of cola, anise, dark chocolate and sandalwood. The voluptuous dark fruit continues on the palate, where rich, mouth-filling tannins add depth and nuance to layers of berry compote, graphite and minerality, while carrying the wines to a long, lush 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.
