Tasting Notes

The 2015 release of Scattered Peaks received a 97-point score from Decanter Magazine and quicky became one of the best selling wines of the year here at K&L. While not professionally reviewed yet, the 2016 is another stunner and promises to be just as highly tounted. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Domestic Wine Buyer) Winery note: "Scattered Peaks is a powerful Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon carefully curated and elegantly crafted by legendary Napa Valley Winemaker, Joel Aiken (27 years as winemaker at Beaulieu Vineyards). Bold and full-bodied, Scattered Peaks offers intense black and red fruit aromas bolstered by hints of mountain sage and a touch of anise. On the palate, dark brooding fruit flavors of black cherry and cassis mingle with essence of black licorice and violets as well as espresso and dark chocolate notes. Firm but silky tannins and a touch of vanilla support the long, lingering finish of this classic Napa Valley Cabernet."

    A delicious Napa Valley Cab with an impeccable pedigree for under $30!?? Yes, please! The nose is full and rich with notes of leather, cigar box, anise, and dark fruits. On the palate, this is classic Napa Cab with cassis, pencil lead, forest floor, well-integrated oak, complimented by silky tannins. This should continue to develop and evolve for several more years. Simply outstanding at this price!

    If you're looking for a classic Napa Valley Cab, look no further! The 2016 Scattered Peaks Cabernet Sauvignon is the wine for you. It over-delivers on all fronts. With concentrated cassis, cedar and violets on the nose, the palate yields a seamless and silky melange of dark fruit, cocoa and coffee notes. This wine is a no-brainer @ $29.95. Pure liquid velvet.

    This is text book Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon being offered at a monumentally attractive price. The wine is simply gorgeous in the glass offering up ripe notes of black berries and a faint hint of cassis for added nuance. The flavors are all up front and quite generous. You kind of don’t need to overthink it. At $30, you can simply pull the cork, pour a full glass, and savor. The 2015 vintage was one of our best selling wines last year. Considering that 2016 is an even stronger vintage, I predict that history will repeat. Grab this while you can.

    With fruit from Napa only getting more and more expensive, it's becoming increasingly difficult if not impossible to find a good Cabernet under the $45 mark. That's why I found the Scattered Peaks, with such an illustrious pedigree behind it, an almost unreal deal. Coming from one of the most experienced winemakers in the Valley, this wine holds all the elements of a high-end, complete Cab; no wonder last vintage was one of our best sellers! This is a medium-bodied Cab with notes of blackberry, cedar, and soft cocoa melding seamlessly together. Drinkable now, this Cab is sure to impress as a gift if you can bear to give it away.

    The nose is full of dense, ripe, chocolaty currant aromatics that burst out of your glass. On the palate the textural presence is dominant there's just a wave of ripe, dark fruit that fills your mouth with its boldness. The finish is more of the same, bold, dramatic, ripe fruit that shows its supple, smooth richness.

    With a winemaking pedigree as renowned as Beaulieu vineyards Joel Aiken, the Scattered Peaks Cabernet has attained incredible press and demonstrated that Napa Valley can still produce excellent red wines for under $50. Brimming with rich aromatics and supple, round flavors of blackcurrants, ripened black plums, licorice, vanilla and shaved dark chocolate, this wine envelops the palate and delivers abundant pleasure for its modest price.
