"The warm vintage worked in this wine's favor, ripening the grapes to blackberry and black currant fruitiness, while preserving the dryness and fine tannins of Atlas Peak. At the age of more than six years, it still remains rather tough and resistant. Considering its mountain origins, it should slowly develop additional bottle complexity over the next 6-8 years. -SH" (05/11)
"The warm summer days of 2004, combined with cool evenings provided a perfect growing season for our Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. The concentrated, well ripened berries resulted in a dark red wine, with complex flavors of cassis, black currant and Bing cherries. The wine spent 2 years in small French oak barrels, and aged another 30 months in the bottle, resulting in a luscious wine with moderate tannins and well balanced acidity." -Winery
"Ardente Estate Winery was founded in 1996 on a twenty acre estate located in the quiet hills of Atlas Peak in Napa Valley. The area was selected for its rich volcanic soil, 1500 feet elevation and moderate microclimate which provide perfect condition for growing high quality Cabernet Sauvignon. Our wines are hand-crafted and aged to be enjoyed upon release, with a depth of flavor, great acidity and a promise of a long aging." -Winery
