Winemaker Notes

This bass-noted wine first exhibits aromas of violet, rich black earth and graphite, then cassis, red plum and dark chocolate. The entry is surprisingly lithe within the wine's ample structure, offering both generosity and gravitas. The tannins are ripe and chocolaty within a lengthy finish; expect immediate enjoyment as well as superb cellaring results.

"The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a classic bouquet of licorice, smoke, and toasty wood. Spicy, fleshy, medium to full-bodied, and tasty, it is ideal for drinking over the next 5-8 years." 89 Points

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a classic bouquet of licorice, smoke, and toasty wood. Spicy, fleshy, medium to full-bodied, and tasty, it is ideal for drinking over the next 5-8 years. The pricing is fair for this cuvee, and there are just under 3,500 cases.

Atalon, Napa Valley, California
2003 Cabernet Sauvignon
The soul of the Atalon story is a ghost winery dating back to 1888. Built by General W.S. Keyes, the white-stone building atop Howell Mountain claims a stake in Napa Valley viticultural lore. At the turn of the twentieth century, General Keyes was producing wines considered to be among the best in Napa County from this old landmark.

The famed Howell Mountain property was acquired by the Jackson family in 1996 and renamed the Keyes Vineyard in honor of the early farmer's pioneering viticultural contributions. Today, the historic ghost winery stands as a strong reminder of a 150-year old tradition of growing wine grapes within the thirty-mile stretch of the Napa Valley frontier.

In 1997, Atalon was created to revive the vineyard's past accomplishments and to build on the area's reputation for producing remarkable red wines. Although inspired by ghosts long gone, Atalon wines reflect a modern understanding of farming Napa's rugged mountains and valleys for the most balanced and expressive wines.

Drawing fruit from selected vineyards, the wines are a composite of vineyards stretching from the rolling hills of Napa-Carneros in the south to the peaks of Howell Mountain in the north. Atalon is dedicated to the true essence and flavor of the Napa Valley, a distinction defined by Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
