2018 ACUMEN PEAK Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon … ALL Critics Rave: 95 DUNNUCK, plus 94+ PARKER! *SAVE 15% bottle! (bonus)

Out of stock



Acumen Estate consists of 116 organically certified acres of vines on Atlas Peak, spread across two vineyards from which a small portfolio of estate-grown wines is born. The winery bases their sought-after style of Cabernet Sauvignon on the great Cabernets of the 1960s and 70s, which helped secure Napa on the international wine map… Acumen sells a large portion of their mountain-grown fruit to other fine wineries in Napa Valley, allowing Chappellet’s 30-year veteran Winemaker Phillip Titus to focus on his favorite small vineyard blocks. The 2018 vintage is graceful with an exquisite yet powerful structure due to a cooler than average summer with zero heat spikes, allowing the grapes to slowly develop full physiological maturity, depth of aromas and flavors, and an incredible overall balance between fruit, earth, and minerality.

*VIP Heads-Up: With only 93 Cases Made, this is an exciting opportunity to enjoy Boutique small-production Cabernet Sauvignon crafted with perfection. I highly recommend you try some, and beyond critical acclaim please see more Noteworthy Buzz below…

95JD – Jeb Dunnuck,“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Peak showed nicely, with beautiful blue fruits, scorched earth, licorice, and violet aromas and flavors. With medium to full-bodied richness, it stays tight and compact on the palate, with a fresh, Bordeaux-like style in its tannins and acidity. It needs 4-5 years of bottle age but should age nicely on its purity and elegance.” JEB DUNNUCK 95 POINTS

94+WA – Robert Parker, Tasting Notes From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Peak charges out of the gate with energetic scents of red and black currants, fresh blackberries and boysenberries with suggestions of camphor, cardamom, tar and new leather plus a waft of pencil shavings. Full-bodied, concentrated and decadent in the mouth, the palate has a solid foundation of firm, grainy tannins and lively freshness to support, finishing long with a pleasantly surprising floral perfume coming through at the end.” ROBERT PARKER 94+ POINTS

“Acumen – A New Shining Star From Napa Valley”
“Recently I have tasted the releases of a relatively new Napa Valley winery that I believe will become, if not a household name, at least a name worth remembering. The winery is Acumen… this is an estate worth remembering. Keep an eye out for these wines.” ~Tom Hyland

★Los Angeles Times

“Acumen’s stellar portfolio of premium red wines reveals the greatness that comes from mountainside grapes.” ~Tom Marquardt and Patrick Darr

★Robb Report

“Acumen Napa Valley Has Wine That Lights Up Atlas Peak
A world-class wine estate matures in Napa.”
“There’s delicious irony in the fact that some of Napa Valley’s most exciting wines come from high in the mountains flanking the valley…Sometimes it takes a new eye—an outsider’s quest for a place with grand cru potential—to shine a new light on a region that’s been hiding in plain sight with remarkable wine-growing characteristics all along.” ~Sara Schneider

★Creators Magazine

“Winery to Watch: Acumen”
“In the world of fine wine, where status is typically established over decades of success, Acumen, founded in 2012 by Eric Yuan, is the new kid on the block and quite the sensation… These wines are every bit as good as any of the so-called cult wines of the Napa Valley that retail for $500 and up. My advice is simple: Buy now, before Acumen’s price catches up to its more established competition.” ~Robert Whitley
