    Winemaker Notes

    Consenso is an Italian word meaning "consent" or "agreement," and symbolizes the affinity between the Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in this blend. Our 1996 Atlas Peak Consenso Vineyard wine consists primarily of mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon (90%), elegantly matched with Sangiovese (10%).

    The grapes for our Consenso Cabernet Sauvignon come from the higher altitude vineyards, terraced along the volcanic hills near our winery. A warm growing season and cool harvest combine to produce intense fruit flavor. This concentration of flavors includes a bounty of cherry, currant and anise characteristics. The blackberry and black cherry flavors of Sangiovese accentuate the consensual quality of this unique wine. The complex structure of this wine allows aging and enjoyment well into the next millennium.

    Food Recommendations: The 1996 Atlas Peak Consenso Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon lends a touch of elegance to succulent roast leg of lamb brushed with rosemary or Dijon mustard. A tenderloin of beef with cracked pepper, bathed in a red wine reduction sauce, will also prove an amiable match.

    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.

    Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

    Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
