94 – 96 Points Kevin M. Vogt, Master Sommelier
How do you get an incredible Atlas Peak Cabernet Blend for $23? Quite honestly, you don’t, unless something very unusual occurs… Originally intended to be single vineyard Cabernets, a winemaking mis-communication led to a portion of two separate high-end projects getting accidentally blended into the wrong tanks. The result is two absolutely stunning blends that became the Vista wines… and both batches were originally slated to sell for $95/btl, had the original concept gone smoothly. We knew when we previously offered Vista Rutherford Blend, we would make some die-hard fans… and we were right. The wine very quickly became our single biggest seller of all time.
Luckily, but almost miraculously so, there is this Atlas Peak version of Vista, and it is even better than the Rutherford… Atlas Peak is an area long celebrated for its concentrated flavors and rocky terroir, and this wine embodies many of the hallmarks that I look for in Atlas Peak Cabernet. Predominately Cabernet Sauvignon, balanced with Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2017 saturates your palate in seductively deep black berries laced with dried lavender, red currants, iron, and crushed rock. If you like the idea of a top quality Napa Cabernet blend at an incredible value, I highly recommend loading up on this one before it also sells out all too soon…
