The mountain top fruit, sourced from the Atlas Peak, AVA, vineyards including the famed Stagecoach vineyards provide the grapes for this wine. Atlas Peak AVA, with its rocky, volcanic soil, basaltic red in color and shallow soil on steep slopes provides the unique growing circumstances for grapes to become the highest quality. Aged in French Oak barrels for 30 months, of which 40% of these are new barrels.
The inspiration behind the label is all about Greek mythology. Atlas was a Titan condemned to hold up the heavens or the sky for eternity. Atlas also played a role in the myths of two of the greatest Greek heroes, Heracles (known as Hercules in Roman mythology) and Perseus. According to Greek legend, Atlas stood at the ends of the earth.
This wine is delicious paired with filet mignon, rack of lamb, bold cheeses such as aged cheddar and portobella mushrooms. This is also a delicious wine to enjoy with chocolate truffles.
