Could this wine be the value of the year? Holy cow. The Wine Advocate: An outstanding blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec is a beauty from four vineyards in Napa Valley, showing the vintage's telltale purity, dense purple color, lushness and seductive mocha, espresso and chocolaty notes intermixed with black cherry and blackcurrant fruit." You'll be racing our own staff to secure a case of this one!

Details

Founded by Jackson Family Estates with the first commercial vintage in 1997, Atalon is an ambitious project combining grapes from four exclusive Napa vineyards. First produced on Howell Mountain at an old ghost winery built by W.S. Keyes, the idea behind Atalon was to produce high quality wine from the original vineyards. Production has now been moved to Cardinale Winery in Oakville, not a bad place to land in our opinion.
