Attelas was planted in 1992 at 1,350 ft elevation in Atlas Peak AVA. Organically farmed – certified in 2016. Volcanic soils. 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec. The 2013 Peak Attelas has less Cabernet than all subsequent vintages in order to better distinguish it from the Peak red, since in 2013 they were the only two wines. From 2014 forward the Peak Attelas has a higher proportion of Cabernet as is more representative of the vineyard proportions. Pleasing blend of fruits and herbs, tree bark and crushed rocks with dusty iron accents from nose through palate. Incredibly palate stimulating with a long savoury finish. A nice delivery of rich flavour with fresh, mountain character yet the fine execution of quality bordeaux – that is, it offers an intersection of distinctly Napa mountain flavour, structure, and freshness with the elegant, layered, density of bordeaux craftsmanship. Impressive tannin execution – fine grained and still lightly tactile with a palate-stimulating effect washed through mouth-watering freshness. Nicely done and delicious. (ECB) 18+/20
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Peak Attelas Vineyard shows slightly sweeter blueberry and blackberry fruit and riper tannins in a medium to full-bodied, elegant and savory style. It is slightly different from the single-vineyard, and consists of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Tannins are ripe and well-integrated with the wood pushed way to the background. This is a medium to full-bodied, impressive wine from Acumen to drink over the next 10-15 years. (RP)
