2015 Sill Family Vineyards Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon
Our 2015 Atlas Peak très Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted utilizing classic, Premier Grand Cru Bordeaux-style techniques from grapes grown and harvested from our high elevation Atlas Peak Mountain vineyards. Its beautiful hue of deep ruby, represents a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc. This suave, silk smooth wine possesses hints of cherries, blackberries, cream-tinged cassis and given the elegant nature of this wine, with a hint of spice, a lovely mouth-feel and wonderful length on the finish. As with the nose, the palate feels polished, with lovely tannins, thus drinking very nicely now, but with patience of 4-10 years of “opening” will achieve incredible brilliance. We believe superior wines come from ultra superior grapes. We are truly blessed with the unique terroir and ideal climate of our high elevation Atlas Peak Mountain vineyard that supports this classic, old world-style estate grown, limited production Bordeaux-style wine.
