Cabernet Sauvignon Atlas Peak 2013 Au Sommet
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Au Sommet comes from well-known Atlas Peak Vineyard at an elevation of 2,100 feet. This is a dense, rich, inky purple-colored wine that offers earthy almost charcoal ember-like notes with plenty of blackberry and cassis fruit. It is youthful and in need of another several years of bottle age as this is a substantial, full-throttle, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon built for long-term cellaring and should easily last a quarter of a century. This is a beauty and should be respected for such.
Winespectator / James Suckling (94)
James Suckling: A tight yet soft red with chocolate, blackberry and currant character. Hints of walnuts from the wood. Medium to full body, velvety tannins and a silky-textured finish. Drink or hold.
