Testimony to the quality of fruit to be had from this amazing Atlas Peak vineyard. A real, honest-to-God Cabernet celebrating its Cabernet-ness without being flamboyant or blowsy. A dense, slightly reluctant nose of blackberry, cassis, baker's chocolate and tobacco leaf/tea leaf. Very welcoming and accommodating entry that lays down a tasty path of forest fruit, black currant, mocha and cedar with upright and grippy tannins. Full-bodied, precisely structured mountain fruit goodness. Still a baby, but with huge potential. Sub-1,000 case production. Limited.

Inky garnet in color, this wine has a rich nose of cherry and floral aromas. In the mouth it is a lovely, balanced concoction of earth and plum flavors wrapped around a core of solid cherry fruit. Nice acids and sandpaper-like tannins lift the wine into a very pleasant finish.

About This Producer


At 1100-1550 feet of elevation on volcanic soils next to Atlas Peak, Paul Erba ended his search for his perfect vineyard site. Here above the fog he planted 20 acres of the classic Bordeaux varieties in tight vineyard spacing to ensure competition among his specially-selected low-yielding clones. Kristof Anderson, formerly of Saddleback and Lewis, has been winemaker since 2003, the first commercial vintage.
