Atlas Peak Chardonnay 1997
In addition to ripe citrus, the 1997 Atlas Peak Vineyards Chardonnay is loaded with Fuji apple and melon flavors and a hint of caramel and vanilla aromas. The finish is clean and crisp. We age the wine on the lees to give it a subtle complexity of toasty oak and butterscotch. This is a wine that is ready to drink now.
Food Recommendations: Shellfish, seafood and poultry are excellent companions to this wine. It also works well with certain types of mellow cheeses, such as Asiago, Gruyere or aged Parmesan.
Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is one of life’s great pleasures. Luscious berry fruit, multi-layered tannins, refined herbal notes and silky texture all combine to transport the wine lover to this incomparable California region, an area famous for long-lived red wines that offer wave after wave of drinking pleasure.
Some of the world’s best vineyards dot the mountain tops, hillsides, and lowlands of the Napa Valley. Framing the valley are the cornerstone mountain appellations of Atlas Peak, Howell Mountain, Spring Mountain District, and Mount Veeder. These areas provide ideal growing conditions for crafting bold, well-structured, ruggedly elegant wines—wines that can only come from great fruit and hard work in hard-to-reach places.
To craft the Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon, the winemakers work closely with vineyard partners to source the finest grapes from mountaintop and lower-elevation vineyards. They weave the fruit into a richly textured tapestry supported by a firm structure—a true “taste of Napa.” This wine, with its substantial length and enduring finish, bears testament to the elegance and refinement of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
