The Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 abounds with berry and spice flavors. The 2012 growing season was superb and produced grapes that were ripe and succulent. The resulting wines have rich aromas of blueberry, blackberry, cassis, sage, bay leaf, and chocolate. The combination of berries, sage, and chocolate is unique and conjures images of rich garden bounty. Flavors of dark fruit and dried herbs continue onto the palate, which is full-bodied and balanced. Enjoy this decadent red wine with seared beef, pepper-crusted lamb, roasted pork, or brisket.
