The soul of the Atalon story is a ghost winery dating back to 1888. Built by General W.S. Keyes, the white-stone building atop Howell Mountain claims a stake in Napa Valley viticultural lore. At the turn of the twentieth century, General Keyes was producing wines considered to be among the best in Napa County from this old landmark. Atalon’s goal is to make a soft approachable Cabernet that is elegant yet impactful. Atalon Cabernet Sauvignon is opaque dark ruby in color. There is a sweetness of dark fruit. Black cherry, blackberry, currant and plum lead the way to cocoa powder, spice and integrated oak. It has great depth and richness of black fruit. Soft, elegant, velvety and juicy with refined tannins and a long finish.
