Full-bodied Cabernet. Handpicked grapes from high-quality vineyards from across Napa Valley, partly from mountain top vineyards located in the elevated Atlas Peak (63,7%) and Diamond Mountain (11,8%), known for creating wines with incredible depth and high concentration. The other portion comes from the Valley’s lower elevations, which help to balance and soften the texture. 17 months of barrel maturation, 100% new French oak. Aromas of blackberry jam, nutmeg, and savoury spices. Flavours of black currant, toffee and baking spices are followed by bold tannins with a long fruit finish.
Serve with red meat, this type of Cabernet loves a seasoning with garlic, rosemary and/or porcini (dried mushrooms). Partners well with roast or grilled lamb, slow-braised beef or venison. Fashionable ox cheek dishes are also a good pairing - even a chilli con carne. Go vegan with big juicy Portobello mushrooms with butter and garlic.
