Cabernet Sauvignon№1 — 2016

Mountain Peak Vineyard

Atlas Peak

NAPA VALLEY

ASHES & DIAMONDS’ Cabernet Sauvignon “Mountain Peak” comes from an organically farmed vineyard situated high atop the Atlas Peak AVA in the Vaca Mountains, at an altitude of 1,400 feet. Planted in 2000, the site’s thin, rugged soils are 60% rock content, resulting in low yields, tiny berries and loose clusters that maintain the conspicuous power of mountain fruit in the pour of a glass. Once in the winery, the grapes are cold-soaked until the start of native fermentation.

Time has unraveled previously tight-knit flavors into a prismatic collision of red and blue fruit, espresso, eucalyptus, cocoa, baking spices and cedar, all while maintaining a chiseled Barolo-esque profile.

A&D Members receive preferred pricing of $130 upon checkout.
