Winemaker Notes

A deep ruby in the glass, the 2009 Atalon offers pleasing aromas of rich black cherry and plum, wrapped in intriguing oak, spice and cedar notes. A round, voluptuous structure supports a gorgeous depth of flavor centering on sweet black cherry, currant, chocolate and coffee. Juicy and jammy, the spicy oak and chocolate notes interlace beautifully with sweet blackberry and black cherry tones leading to a soft, velvety finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with gorgeous, perfumed aromatics. Sweet red berries, flowers, licorice and spices flow effortlessly from this beautifully delineated wine. Bright, floral notes add lift on the finish. This is a terrific wine for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Bright, dark red. Strong rose petal lift to the redcurrant aroma. Sweet, round and easygoing, with juicy acidity giving shape to the cherry and redcurrant flavors. A rather voluptuous cabernet whose firm tannins won't get in the way of enjoying it young. This is the first vintage for new winemaker Brian Kosi, who told me he's trying to soften this wine up somewhat while maintain its 'mountain backbone.'

Atalon
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.

Best known for sweet, fizzy white wines but also producing some more serious reds, Asti is both a town and a province in the northeastern Italian region of Piedmont. The best vineyard sites are reserved for Barbera, which can produce some of its best and most age-worthy iterations here as Barbera d’Asti. Other red varieties grown here include Freisa, Grignolino, and Dolcetto, which can be bottled varietally or blended into Barbera.

The wines consumers most commonly associate with Asti, however, are Asti (formerly known as Asti Spumante), and Moscato d’Asti. Both are playful, aromatic, and made from the Muscat grape, but Asti is less sweet, fully fizzy, and more alcoholic (yet still clocking in at only around 9% ABV) while Moscato d’Asti is sweeter, gently sparkling (“frizzante”), and closer to 5 or 6% ABV. Each is produced in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fresh and fruity flavors of the grape, which include peach, apricot, lychee, and rose petal.
