Winemaker Notes

Sangiovese is clearly a grape variety that is growing in popularity with American wine lovers. Rooted in the history of the Tuscany region of Italy, Sangiovese is the primary grape found in Chianti Classico wines. The 1997 Atlas Peak Reserve Sangiovese has shed the old world and taken on a decidedly distinctive California flavor.

The long, slow 1997 growing season has produced our best Sangiovese to date. The fruit is concentrated with ripe plum and black cherry and blackberry flavors accentuated by a complex layering of oak and smoke spice character.

With the release of our hearty 1997 Reserve Sangiovese it is clear why Atlas Peak Vineyards has become America's leading producer of this wonderful Tuscan grape variety.

The rich, plum flavors of this wine are certainly at home with a marinara-sauced pasta or a simple rustic pizza with sun-dried tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. Try marinating a steak with pepper and garlic for a delicious pairing with this Sangiovese.

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.
