Atlas Peak, high above the fog line at 2663 ft overlooking Napa Valley, is world famous for its rugged terrain and volcanic soils that produce some of the most acclaimed wines on the North Coast. Growing fruit here is a particularly difficult labor of love and the yields tend to be small, but through struggle there is reward – the bold, dense Cabs from this AVA tend to age magnificently, and are as distinct as they are exquisite.
Lot 779 comes to us from a state of the art winery on Atlas Peak with a reputation for dark, inky wines with strong tannins, and this is no exception. Boasting a ripe, dark core and produced from estate vineyards on free-draining hillsides, the wine is a stunning example of what’s possible when top talent is given fantastic mountain grapes to work with in an outstanding vintage. Still a baby, it’s already showing plenty of character and will undoubtedly impress more with each passing year.
Still young. and open in a coupe Gave it a five hour decant before serving and still was a little tight. Dark wine with strong tannins. Will save my other bottle years. Nice wine now but didn't blow mt socks off
This is not a bottle to open and drink without a few hours to breathe. It really opened up and while it does not provide a punch of fullness, it is well balanced and delightful as an after dinner sipping wine.
I love Cabernet Sauvignon and this did not disappoint. Fruity, blackberries, lots of tannins, so good.
Well balanced with enough smoothness.
Nice wine that I've purchased on numerous times. Will get better with age.
Best CH Cab in a while ...
Just finished my second bottle of Lot 779 ... REALLY enjoyed it ... It's dark pour matched it's dense, rich, dry body and medium long finish. Day 2 was best and still surprisingly good on day 3.
However, the first bottle I opened had a noticable bite of carbonation ... left me concerned about the rest of the case, was summer shipping a factor? ... hope the rest will be ok ... I enjoyed it all the same.
Despite that, the second bottle was so good I reordered ... I'm not big on expensive bottles (for me that's +$30/bottle) ... but I'm not going to chance missing out on the like of this ... hard to believe stock lasted this long.
Nicely done, thx you Cam.
pours dark, squid ink. Blackberries and tannins. Love a big red. Love this one. Jim.
This cab was not my favorite and the price, more like $10. Sorry
Decanted for a day and never really opened up. I will cellar for a few years.
Deep ruby and full bodied
Deep, dark ruby color, nice rich blackberry and cherry; full-bodied, indicative of a Napa Cab and especially Atlas Peak. Strong tannins smoothed out a bit after decanting; and better on the second day.
Let open a little bit!
