    Atlas Peak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
    Sold Out $26.99
    2012 vintage available for $26.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    95+. Full of Cabernet fruit - blackcurrant with vanill and hints of coffee or chocolate and maybe plums or black cherry. Fruit forward, but certainly not sweet. In fact, judging from the 14.5% alcohol content the residual sugar is probably minimal. the fruit carries the alcohol very nicely. The tannins were soft and light, but I consider that a plus. I htought I was mistaken because its not likely to get a superb wine at this price point but my wife, who has a great palate, firmly agreed. Both of us felt this was better than the 08 Alexander Valley Silver Oak and at a fraction the price.
