The perfect wine pair includes the 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2021 Atlas Peak, Napa Valley Chardonnay.
2018 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon: With abundant rains in the winter, followed by plenty of filtered light in the spring and early summer, the 2018 vintage saw near perfect growing conditions. Bud break occurred a bit late, but yielded a very even fruit set with such moderate temperatures. Summer brought bright sun and cool evenings for lovely extended ripening and consistency into the fall.
2021 Atlas Peak, Napa Valley Chardonnay: The 2021 Chardonnay is of high quality and low yield vineyards. It was one of Napa's earliest, smallest volume vintages in Napa Valley. To respond, we shifted our white winemaking to the cooler Napa AVA across an exciting new series of vineyards where we worked hand-in-hand with each vineyard crew to ensure we picked and crushed only the best quality grapes.
