Tasting Notes

91 points Robert Parker: "An exceptional wine, the black/purple-colored 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Mountain Estates (1,800 cases) has gorgeous blackberry and cassis flavors intermixed with licorice, spice box, Asian spice, and vanilla. It is unctuously-textured, full-bodied, with moderate tannin in the finish. Ideally, I would give this wine 2-3 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following two decades. It is a top-flight wine and an impressive new entry into the Cabernet sweepstakes. What an impressive debut performance." (12/2000) Atalon was created by the Jackson Family in 1997 to explore the valley and mountains of the Napa Valley appellation. Under the direction of vetern winemaker Tom Peffer, Atalon harvests fruit from the region's most respected vineyards.
