Just opened an atlas peak 04' mt. Veeder on Saturday night. Beautiful bottle of wine from a woot about 3.5 years ago. Of course back then it was $32 a bottle shipped. This is not that price.

Wow!

Got a 3L monster back in Dec of '12 when it was offered HERE.
750's now so I can try one while I'm still above the turf line.
Same $/oz now as then too...
Still WD, have mercy; the tour is next week.

The '04 Atlas Peak cab is probably the best wine that I've ever purchased myself. Incredibly smooth and well balanced.

CT is showing an average price at just over $25. Where did people get these bottles at that price?

I purchased in June of last year. Was $6 less then for the 2005. Odd to see the retail price drop from $184 then to $137 now and our price go up $6. Can the winery maybe speak to the price difference between the offerings? Obviously not a complaint, I always like seeing prices come DOWN. ;)

I don't have any notes from the 2005, but remember enjoying the first bottle we opened. The other is still sitting in the cellar.

It's great to be a Florida Gator!

I have some 05 and 06 spring mountain, Howell mountain and Mt Vedeer. How does this compare to any of those wines?

I was a little confused when it said 91% Howell Mtn, 98% Atlas Peak. Assume that means the petite verdot is not from Atlas Peak and the majority of the cab is Howell Mtn?

I'm guessing the Howell mountain is 1.1% instead of 91.1% just a guess.

Did you look at the exact listing in Caesars link? The white label cab might have been available for that price but I am doubting the black label would be.

Yeah, I used the link posted above by Caesar. I'm not familiar with the difference between the white/black labels, but the price difference definitely seemed off. The drinking window also seems a bit short, but that's just a thought. I couldn't find any other info on CT or winesearcher, but at $48 a bottle plus tax + shipping this is a pass for me right now.

Either a closeout somewhere sometime or someone used the wrong ct entry for their purchase.

This wine is at my local Costco for $50 right now. I've had 3 bottles. I don't have notes with me, but I loved it. It is exactly what you expect from a big and powerful Napa Cab. I like it better than most because it never over powers with tobacco or leather type flavors. Deep dark fruits dominate with just the right tannin level and dryness. Perfect pairing with a big juicy ribeye. It is very worth the price and I've never seen one lower.

Atlas Peak Cabs are almost always worth seeking out, especially in a good year like 2009. I'd be on this like white on rice if I weren't keeping my powder dry for the Tour....

This is the first time we've offered the Atlas Peak Mountain bottling. The previous wines were from different districts. The great thing is the Atlas Peak/Atlas Peak Mountain has not been offered into the retail market so it's only been sold here at the winery- very limited production. It's 2007 (stellar vintage!), and is drinking so nicely now--- but is certainly worthy for holding.

Just to clear up any confusion: the Atlas Peak Napa Valley Blend Cabernet (white label) is a blend of fruit from some high elevation vineyards on the famed Napa mountains but the majority is valley floor. This label is our largest production wine and widely distributed. Whereas the Atlas Peak Cabernet- Atlas Peak Mountain bottling (black label) is solely fruit from Atlas Peak (and some Howell)-no valley floor fruit. The production methods are different and the mountain series wines and see far more aging then the NV Blend.

Outside of the aging, what production methods are different? I'm guessing oak. What else?

Agreed, the Atlas Peak Cabernet mountain series wines never disappoint. Today's feature is not available at Costco as it's a limited-release wine and has only been sold thru the winery. The Atlas Peak Mountain blend will definitely make a great wine to cellar or enjoy now with some decanting.

Well that's unusual -- no Colorado! I think that's a first for me other than some of the international offerings over hundreds of wine woots. Oh well...

Colorado is on the ship-to list.

I stand corrected. It was from Howell Mountain. Still fantastic though.
