Tasting Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "This full-bodied wine starts with fragrant aromas of black cherries, English roses, mocha, sweet earth, and fresh blackberry pie. On the palate, we find mouth-coating flavors of blueberries, Santa Rosa plums, and baking spices with a pleasant grip of ripe tannins coupled with notes of toffee, rhubarb compote, fresh sage and cigar box on the long and pleasant finish. Cabernet Sauvignon driven Bordeaux style blend. 18 months in 70% new French oak."

    A spectacular offering from the small but highly regarded production Acumen, the 2014 Mountainside offers a beautifully elegant Bordeaux style wine. Warm, dark fruit are perfectly complimented by the herbal notes from higher elevation fruit and choice of French oak gives beautiful spice notes. While there is plenty of fruit here, this is a balanced and focused style as opposed to a overly lush Napa cab and shows concentration and power that this area can achieve.

    Acumen is a highly sought after, small production "cult brand" in Napa Valley, and the 2014 Mountainside Red exceeds expectations, drinking more beautifully than Napa wine twice the price. A Cabernet based Bordeaux blend, the wine is elegant and expressive of Atlas Peak, which sees a significant drop in temperature in the evenings, encouraging acidity and concentration of flavor. With 18 months in 72% new French oak, the wine is artfully balanced and elegant, highlighting the unparalleled abilities of the late, famed founding winemaker Denis Malbec, previously of Chateau Latour.
