Product Description

The 2013 Alta Oso Malo Cabernet Sauvignon has a floral nose with hints of, licorice, fresh plums, cassis, cherries, and dark fruit with a hint of burnt caramel and roasted coffee. In the mouth, compote of blueberry and currants comes forward in front of the chewy and velvet like tannins. The tannins are just the right size to create a lattice for the fruit so that it lingers on the palate. The scent of violets comes up over time, and the soft tannins are integrated into a delicious mouth feel. This wine has good potential to age well, but it’s showing well as a young wine.

Appellation: Atlas Peak AVA (Napa Valley)

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"From the wilds of Atlas Peak, this lovely wine is dense and concentrated in mountain fruit and lengthy tannin—the oak and weight well-integrated and complex. Pie crust, vanilla and clove provide a sultry luxury and invitation."

91 Points - James Suckling
"Aromas of blueberries, dark chocolate and walnuts follow through to a full body, round and silky tannins and a fresh and clean finish."

89 Points - Wine Spectator
"Notably oaky, with mocha, vanilla bean and light cedar elements, but those component only add to the core of currant and blackberry flavors, imparting touches of green olive and dill. Glides along gracefully on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 400 cases made."
