Wine Tasting Notes
Lobo Wulff Vineyards Atlas Peak Napa Cabernet consistently provides all the steep hillside structure that mountain wine lovers seek.
Dark ruby in the glass with an opaque core, the telltale intense dark berry fruit and minerality greet the nose. There is a dusty, almost chalky suggestion leading the aromas with bay leaf, roasted rosemary, Acai, plum and blueberry skin as well as fresh violets, rosemary blossoms and hints of distant lavender with a dash of nutmeg.
The palate is both dense and elegant with round yet grippy tannins and a mouth-coating texture that lingers and evolves. Tension between cocoa, espresso and sweet blackberry, blueberry and plum fruit create a lovely interplay of layered flavor. Some herbal notes underlie the fruit, with bay laurel, roasted thyme and savory rosemary. It offers a persistent, long finish where its youthful power makes its presence known.
